The sun is shining and the weather is warm but our fight isn’t slowing down.
We need to keep sending the clear message that we are we are willing to fight for fair treatment and to protect the pensions we’ve been paying into and negotiating for years.
Our next great chance is coming up soon and we need your help.
What: University council is meeting
(More info here: http://www.usask.ca/secretariat/governing-bodies/council/index.php)
When: Thursday, May 23, 2:30
Where: Room 241 Arts (Neatby-Timlin Theatre)
Why: because the people who run the university need to hear from the people who keep it running.
The University council is meeting this Tuesday. It’s made up of over 100 representatives including the University president and representatives from all of the colleges, affiliated and federated colleges, and the Library.
Come on out to the meeting. Bring a small (e.g. 8.5×11) sign. Let’s remind the University administration that we’re the people who actually keep this University running.
This won’t be a loud protest but it is a chance to show them that we’re in this together.
They need to negotiate with us in good faith, they can’t expect us to be ok with more wage freezes, and they better keep their paws off our pensions.
We won’t back down.
