December 18th Solidarity Rally Pledge

WHEN: Monday, December 18th, 2023 @ 3pm – 4:30pm
WHERE: In front of Simcoe Hall

On December 18th, join CUPE members and students across UofT in demanding respect, dignity, and economic justice from the university. Decisions from the administration continue to put economic pressure on both employees and students. With a significant number of CUPE members on campus earning below the living wage for Toronto, and with rising food prices on campus, let’s unite in our commitment to fair wages and affordable living! Attend the rally at the Governing Council of the University of Toronto to voice your support!

Can you commit to attending?
