Dear Student,

Our students want to get back to finish the school year so they can keep their plans – graduation, summer jobs, family responsibilities and travel for those going home or abroad.

Unfortunately, we remain far apart on wages as well as the non-monetary issues that are fundamental to the academic success of our students, researchers and educators. Today, we are requesting a supervised vote to allow all 3,100 members of CUPE 3903 to have a say on whether to accept our offers.

What is a supervised vote?

A supervised vote is a process managed by the Ministry of Labour that provides every member of CUPE 3903 the opportunity to vote using a secret ballot. A supervised vote can only be requested once.

When could this happen?

We made our request for a supervised vote to the Minister of Labour today. It usually takes eight to 10 days from the time the request is received to conduct the vote.
