TAs End Strike by 91.5%, Reject Administration Back-to-Work Offer by 97.5%Eric | June 19, 2008
For those of you who have been following news about the TA Strike…
In a General Assembly held [yesterday], a landslide 91.5% vote by McGill’s teaching assistants ended their 72-day strike. TAs are eager to return to work now that the parties have agreed on a collective agreement.
At the same time, TAs voted by an even stronger margin–97.5%–to reject the Administration’s Back-to-Work Protocol tabled [yesterday] morning. Members refused to accept a protocol that would inadequately address the TAs fired and suspended from their on-campus employment and would rather return to work and let their cases proceed in court.
