Bargaining Bulletin #11: Jan 8

Hello Postdocs,

Happy New Year! Here’s a summary of recent events:

The University would not agree to dates in January, so we will meet with them next on Feb 10 and Feb 11. This delay is frustrating, but the best way to reach a fair collective agreement quickly remains a strong strike mandate.

Leading up to the negotiations, we plan to hold a strike vote on Feb 2 and 3. An individual from a team of CUPA representatives will be reaching out to you soon to talk about this.

In the coming weeks, we will continue to raise awareness about postdoctoral working conditions and pressure the employer to make a fair offer. Watch for more information, and check our website, for updates.

Feel free to contact us anytime with questions.

Your CUPA Executive,

Judith Brown ( and William Leight (
