Job Action Alert: Burnaby, Keep up the Pressure

Written by jan. Posted in News

Our picket lines are working. We met with university administration this morning and they are feeling the pressure. With that in mind, we have decided to picket the Burnaby campus again tomorrow (Friday, Nov 2 from 8am to 4pm).

Same plan as today. Sign-in at Convo Mall: A to L at 7:45 and M – Z at 11:45. Anyone who switched due to work start or end times should go to the appropriate shift. Any new schedule accommodations should email me.

We will also be picketing Surrey campus tomorrow between 8:30 am and 4:30pm. Email me if you are from the Surrey campus and have not yet been added to the cupe3338-surrey email list.

Harbour Centre and Woodwards building will be picketed on Saturday and Sunday, time TBA.

In Solidarity,
Jan Gunn
