CUPE 2278 President Trish Everett leading the Union to a fair settlement

CUPE 2278, Teaching Assistants at the University of British Columbia (UBC), escalated their strike with picket lines at the Geography and Math buildings. The strategy at this point is rolling picket lines, increasing momentum across the campus. The energy was evident as the numbers of the TAs on picket lines continue grow and get increasingly visible and vocal. Geography TAs Catriona Gold and Sam Robinson were upbeat about giving the University a wake up call. Gold noted that “we’ve had some really good responses from students” while Robertson stated that “a lot of this is just about getting your voice out there at this point.”
