On Campus

Strike deadline at UWindsor

Support staff could walk by the 21

Campus police, and other support staff at the University of Windsor, could be on strike as early as next week. After the Canadian Auto Workers, which has 400 members, received a 96 per cent vote in favour of a strike, the union announced that the university has until Oct 21 to avert a walkout. The CAW represents campus police and parking officials, operating engineers, and full and part-time office and clerical workers. The union cites “pensions and job security as well as wages and benefits,” as areas where agreement has not yet been met. Negotiations restarted yesterday.
