CUPE 3902 has recently agreed to send its agreement with the university to ratification but a union-wide strike is still a possibility.

In the event that a strike does occur, all bargaining unit members — TAs, course instructors, exam invigilators, and lab demonstrators — will stop working under the labour conditions set out by the administration.

Members can still perform their academic duties by their own volition but will be urged by the union to picket.

The university will remain open during a strike and has said it will not impose a lockout on union members, which would allow them to work should they choose to.

It will keep operations running as smoothly as possible in the event of a strike, allowing students to finish their courses within the expected timeframe.
