APUO Members Make History

At today’s strike vote, 691 members voted. Repeat: 691 members voted. On July 31st. In the middle of the summer. Some were on sabbatical. Others were on vacation. A few more had just started their jobs on July 1st. They came and they voted. And they voted 82% in favour of a strike mandate. This is APUO’s first ever strike vote.

The strike mandate authorizes the APUO executive committee to call a strike if and when necessary.

The Negotiating Team will be in mediation this long weekend and will use all of its power to get members an acceptable contract that respects and promotes the quality of education at the university and ensures fair and equitable working conditions.
