YorkU staff, UOttawa part-time professor unions vote in support of strike action

Unions at two Ontario universities have recently voted in support of strike action. At York University, York University Staff Association (YUSA) members voted 91% in favour of a strike mandate. YUSA’s contract expired in July 2021, and a No Board Report was filed on June 8th. YUSA members will be able to start a strike on July 1 if they have not reached an agreement with the university. At the University of Ottawa, part-time professors represented by the Association of Part-Time Professors of the University of Ottawa (APTPUO) voted 97.5% in favour of a strike if negotiations were not successful. APTPUO states that they were forced to take a vote early after the employer requested conciliation.
