Up-to-the-minute information about the CUPE 3906 Unit 1 TA strike at McMaster University


Dear Members

The results of the November 8th and 9th ratification vote are as follows.  This vote was conducted under the protocols laid out in the local?s bylaws, monitored by an external supervisor and counted by two elected scrutineers.  It represents the democratic will of the membership of this local.  This vote has been the latest step in an ongoing democratic process.

The members have voted 58% in favour of accepting the Employer?s offer.

The Canadian Union of Public Employees, local 3906 has accepted McMaster?s University?s latest offer.


The membership of this local has opted to accept the employer?s contract and, as a result, cease strike activity effective immediately. We will be meeting the Employer at 10 A.M. tomorrow to negotiate a back-to-work protocol that will set forth the conditions by which members will resume their regular duties as teaching and research assistants.  Please contact our strike office at  905-528-2873 if you have  questions about returning to work.  Details of this agreement will be made available as soon as possible.  Please continue to check the blogs and your email for information.

In solidarity,
Mary Ellen Campbell
President, CUPE 3906
