CUPE Local 3905 reject Lakehead University final offer

    THUNDER BAY, ON, March 27 /CNW Telbec/ - The Teaching and Graduate
Assistants (TAs and GAs) of CUPE 3905 at Lakehead University have rejected the
university's final offer, and are asking the university to return to the
bargaining table.
    "Obviously we are disappointed with the university's final offer. In an
attempt to avert a strike, we are asking the university to return to the
bargaining table," said CUPE National Representative Mike Walters.
    "With the new workload, no job security and the rise in tuition fees we
really believe our members must receive a higher wage package than the
university is offering. Their wage offer is the lowest of any universities
across the province," he concluded.
    Further information will be released when the university responds to the
request for a return to the table.
