Background — Some York University faculty members have been very concerned about the effect labour disruptions have had on our students, as well as on the University as a whole. As faculty members, we have decided to take a public stance that we believe will play a part in addressing the concerns of current and future students. Our hope is that a significant number of faculty members will join us and help get York University back on track to being a strong, successful environment where students can expect to complete their education without the fear of disruption.
A public statement is being circulated by faculty members to allay the fears of students regarding labour disruptions at York University. The statement is found below. Please consider signing this statement at yorkustatement.concernedprofs.ca and sharing it with your colleagues. Access to the statement requires a login using your Passport York account.
The statement has been prepared by Carl S. Ehrlich (Professor, History and Humanities), Ida Ferrara (Associate Professor, Economics), and Rose Steele (Professor, Nursing).
