Two of three possible days in mediation at the Labour Relations Board have resulted in no progress at the bargaining table. Your Contract Committee is disappointed that our willingness to move toward settlement was not acknowledged or reciprocated by SFU Administration.
Despite the overwhelming solidarity shown by TSSU members during the ongoing grade withholding, SFU Administration has still not addressed TSSU’s core issues at the table. Your Contract Committee believes that a public show of collective power is urgently needed at this stage of bargaining.
Your Contract Committee will be dedicating the next week to mobilizing members and supporters in preparation for picket lines at the Applied Sciences Building on the morning of Tuesday, September 8th, and the Academic Quadrangle on the evening of Wednesday, September 9th. We will see you on the picket line.
