    CUPE 1393 on Thursday called for the University to “finish the job – let’s negotiate, so we can celebrate.”

    “We owe it to students, our neighbours and the many alumni taking part in 50th Anniversary events in the coming weeks and months to sit down and negotiate a collective agreement that is both fair to all parties and protects quality, post-secondary education,” said Dean Roy, President of CUPE 1393 Thursday.
