Upcoming Meetings


We will be holding a special strike information session for Unit 1 members to answer outstanding questions about what happens in the event of a Unit 1 Strike at McMaster. 

When and Where:  Wednesday, October 28, starting at 5:00 P.M. in Divinity College, Room 136.

Agenda items include answers to questions you may have about:

* how you can still help to avert a strike?

* what happens if you choose to work during a strike?

* strike policies and practices, such as strike pay and applying for strike pay, benefits during a strike, hardship applications, strike work accommodations, and academic work

* answers to questions you may have about picket lines, picket shifts

Please continue checking out our bargaining blog at for more information, including an FAQ that covers some of these questions. Also, most members will have received an e-mail from the Employer recently about working during a strike. It is crucial that members become fully informed about the consequences of doing so; as such we will be providing more information about this later in the day. Please stay tuned for more updates. While your bargaining team will work diligently at the mediation table this week, we need to be prepared in the event that the Employer forces us out on strike.

In solidarity,

Mary Ellen Campbell, President, CUPE 3906
