YorkU workers rally for fair wages


Members of York University unions held a rally yesterday at Keele campus to call for fair wages. The rally was supported by the York University Staff Association (YUSA), York University Faculty Association (YUFA), CUPE 3903, and CUPE 1356, who together represent a wide range of staff, faculty, services, and business operations. A release from YUSA states that workers have received wage increases of only 1% each year in the last three years, while inflation reached 6.8% in 2022 alone. “Workers at York University have seen their wages decline relative to inflation and now many have difficulty meeting their basic needs,” said YUSA President Sonny Day.
