There are 3 comments on Classes Would Continue as Usual If Custodial and Trade Staff Strike

  1. Never ever cross a picket line. I think staff and students should be more concerned with supporting the strike than whether or not all operations would continue as usual.

  2. I remember the time IT walked the picket line in solidarity with them. And then they signed their contract and agreed to a ‘No sympathy’ clause and hung us out to dry on our strike. Nice guys.

  3. I’m glad that the bargaining committee on both sides of the table had the patience, perseverance and mutual respect for each other to get to a reasonable agreement. I hope the students have some relief also.
    We are here for you and you are the reason both sides of the table are here.
    My loss was our hmo but grateful for other parts of the agreement.

    I initially commented on this authors article earlier in the week about Mr. Nicksa’s perception that the union agreed in 2014 to join the ppo in 2018. We did not. That part of the article was continually attached to at least 3 articles this week. Why does a journalist do that?
    My position is the same. We didn’t agree to it back then. However late last night we finally agreed to join the university ppo.
