July 31st,  12PM,  GH 111 (McMaster Council Chambers)

Following the tabling of Bill 124, McMaster has offered Teaching Assistants (and RA’s in lieu) and Post-Doctoral Fellows contracts that would amount to pay cuts.

What is Bill 124? How will it affect us at McMaster?
And, most importantly – How will we respond?

Join us for this Emergency Town Hall

Cost of Childcare can be Reimbursed for CUPE 3906 Members

On the Agenda:

  • Guest Speakers – Roberto Henrquez & Janice Folk-Dawson

  • Bargaining Team Updates

  • Q & A Session – your time to speak up!

  • Community Strategy Session – what are our next steps?

Roberto Henriquez

Roberto practices labour law, employment law, and human rights law in Hamilton and across south-west Ontario including:  Brantford, Kitchener-Waterloo, Cambridge, Guelph, Ancaster, Dundas, Milton, Mississauga, Oakville, and Burlington.

Since being called to the bar in 2014, Roberto worked in-house at a large private sector union, an administrative tribunal, and in local Hamilton government before joining Molyneaux Law in Spring 2019.

Roberto will be speaking to us about Bill 124 itself: What does it entail? Who does it affect? What happens if it becomes a law?

Janice Folk-Dawson

Janice is the President of CUPE Local 1334 which represents the Maintenance, Trades and Service personnel at the University of Guelph. Janice is also the Chair of the Ontario University Workers’ Coordinating Committee (OUWCC), which is one of 6 large sector groups within CUPE Ontario.

Janice is a feminist and community activist, and has been vital to CUPE 3906’s ongoing strategy in response to Bill 124.

Janice will be speaking to us about the University Sector’s response to Bill 124, how the sector has already been affected, and what role the OUWCC can play in our fight back.
