A York University Faculty Statement

Over the past couple of decades, York University has been roiled by a series of ever more acerbic, contentious, and frequent labour disruptions. The damage to the University and its reputation has been immeasurable. Even worse has been the collateral damage to our students and to the many workers who rely on the University for their livelihoods.

Without our taking sides in any labour disputes, it is evident to us that the outmoded tactics used by York’s academic labour unions, whether CUPE or YUFA, cause irreparable harm to our students by using them as hostages and pawns in pursuit of the unions’ own aims, no matter how worthy these aims may be.

Hence, considering our primary roles and responsibilities as educators of and mentors to our students, we, the undersigned York University faculty members, hereby state publicly that we will not act willfully in a manner injurious to our students’ education.

Furthermore, we call upon our employer and York University’s academic labour unions to negotiate non-strike clauses in their collective agreements with the understanding that any irreconcilable differences in future labour negotiations would be settled by means of binding arbitration to ensure the smooth functioning of our common educational enterprise and to avoid even the possibility of another academic labour disruption at York University.

Presented in alphabetical order are the faculty members who have signed the statement. Thank you for your support.
