There is a strike at the University of Windsor.
The University says that they will remain open and that classes will continue during a CUPE 1393 work stoppage that began at 12:45am on Sunday, September 8th.
The University and CUPE 1393 were unable to come to an agreement before the strike deadline.
On Thursday, CUPE said that they were seeking modest improvements to wages and to maintain existing job security and job evaluation provisions.
CUPE 1393 says they represent 281 skilled trades, professional, and technical employees including systems programmers, equipment technicians, plumbers, carpenters, electricians, painters, database administrators, therapists, graphic designers, audio engineers, nurses, development officers, writers, communicators, specialists, coordinators and advisors.
The University says “Remember you have the legal right to continue to come to campus and use all University services during a strike. Picket lines must keep moving and allow free passage of non-striking individuals, in and out. There will, however, likely be some delays so be sure to plan your time accordingly.”
Officials at the University say that they will do everything it can to minimize the disruption. They direct everyone to the Bargaining Unit’s Website found here to see what services may be limited or discontinued during the work stoppage.
