Now there is another strike going on, with the residence and maintenance staff.

One strike could be fault on either side, but when 2 unions are having job action on the same institution at the same time, the common denominator needs to be fixed


Once the TSSU votes yes and sets up a picket line in front of the buses, the transit union will cooperate and a general strike will ensue.

I'm saying this happens within one week from today.

What a joke.
I had one class today, the other was cancelled, and only half the students actually showed up.
I've had profs and TA's e-mail saying not to go up at all, even if classes aren't officially cancelled.
Why are we paying thousands of $ per year to go here again?

All my classes today, and because of the other strike, can't get mail from my parents


I'd definitely consider transferring if it weren't for the other students that I've met here

TSSU voted today on whether or not the support the use of picketing. If the vote is in favour, TSSU will likely set up a picket line along with CUPE.

OMG we could've had McKeown!

I think Virtanen was a terrible pick given that he's out for 6 months which will hinder his development. You don't pick someone at #6 under that circumstance, along with the fact that he was given a 3/5 IQ (aka he's dumb). 

God dammit Benning. WHY VIRTANEN? Terrible move.

To clarify, if the picket lines are placed at the bus stop, there will be no service up and down the mountain (during the picket times). The drivers are NOT allowed to cross it.

The sessional instructor will be the one to decide if class is cancelled. The decision will be made based on whether your instructor does or does not support the picket line.

UPDATE: TSSU Members Vote In Favour of Strike (NOT MY VOTE)


Here is the e-mail I have received from Connor Moffat early this afternoon.

Over 1000 members participated in our vote to escalate job action to
picket lines and gave us a strong and resounding double-majority YES.
As a result, TSSU has commenced picket line action. In conjunction
with CUPE 3338, picket lines will be up at SFU's downtown campuses
from 8:30am to 8:30pm on Saturday and Sunday.


Any members available to picket should call our picket line at
604-808-5398 to arrange for a shift. Since this is now our picket
line, duties performed at this picket line will count towards hours
for strike pay, even if members are not missing instructional hours.
As per the strike policy, members who cross this picket line to
perform TSSU work duties will be subject to fines and forfeiture of
wages.


A full withdrawal of services by both CUPE 3338 and TSSU will occur at
all of SFU's campuses on Wednesday November 7.
Members need to
continue to watch their emails for updates on the precise details of
picket lines for next week.

The dedication and solidarity of our members on CUPE's picket lines on
Thursday and Friday has forced SFU to agree to mediation with us. Your
Contract Committee is currently at the mediation with the employer
only because of the dedication of the members who refused to cross
CUPE's picket lines, resulting in the cancellation of hundreds of
classes. We need our members to continue to put the pressure on SFU by
being on the picket line so we can get to an agreement as
expeditiously as possible.

Sent on behalf of the Strike & Contract Committees.



I am strongly opposed to a picket line.

OMG we could've had McKeown!

You know what's a joke? Trying to get a diploma or degree in Networking while I am forced to take: a business class, two programming courses, a history course, 6 math courses, and another computer course. ALL of which have nothing to do with furthering my understanding of networking. I've spent more time on this crap than I have actually put towards learning what I actually want to. Granted, I did enjoy the server and history classes, but I would have preferred not to and just spent my time doing what I want.

UFV needs to get their crap together. BCIT kids don't have to do any of this garbage; they're leaving us @ UFV in the dust.

I'd already be eligible for my diploma if it wasn't for having to upgrade math.

We're paying for our piece of paper that acts as a job token... or fuel for the bin fire.

Yeah I agree, we are basically paying for our credits. Do any of us Actually want to go to school when we can be doing other things like going to the gym or watching tv. Its always funny when people complain that their classes are cancelled. I'm sure deep down they are actually happy about it and would rather not go to their classes.

I can say that I loved when my classes were cancelled on Nov 1 haha

It is frustrating though to not be able to get the extra support in classes we are struggling in.


I don't see how people have any real claim for tuition reimbursement though, its been about 2 days of actual job action. Classes have been cancelled because of weather for longer periods of time

Yeah, if I'm being honest, I enjoyed sleeping in on Friday when my lectures were cancelled. However I was also frustrated because the lectures I'm missing are important review classes before my midterm <_<

as a former TA...I do not agree with this. TA's make quite a lot of money.

That being said...email the president of SFU and i think he will eventually buckle under the pressure and give the TSSU a raise.

I think the pressure from students over facebook, on the next job action day will be the one to hopefully get a deal done

I think SFU needs more help than teacher salaries. Did your post say "so you know how hard you need to work" ... I think the obvious answer to that is obvious.

Ok my professor decided to make a quiz multiple choice since it would take forever for him to mark it without the TA's.

The result? I aced the multiple choice quiz because it became much easier. This on a course i'm not doing well at... Keep it up strike I guess?
