CUPEcast Episode 1 : What is CUPEcast? Bargaining updates (Oct 21, 2019)


Welcome to CUPEcast, a show about CUPE 3906 , the union for McMaster TAs, RAs, sessionals, postdocs, etc. In this first episode introduces the reason behind this podcast, introduces your host Adam, and will bring you up to date on the bargaining between McMaster and Unit 1.

Looking to help?
Let’s keep this momentum going!

Reach out to your Department      Chair or Executive Committee for letters of support like those linked      above. Similarly, if you are      involved in an organization on campus that supports our bargaining      priorities, ask your fellow members for a public statement of      support! Use social media to increase      pressure on McMaster to return to the table ASAP. Our Twitter and Facebook accounts      tend to have lots of content for      sharing. You can also take a picture       with the #BetterMac window sign and       tag us on these platforms. Visit for       a copy of the sign, or drop by the Union Office at Kenneth Taylor Hall,       room B111 to participate. Sign & Share our Petition! JOIN THE      STRIKE COMMITTEE! All are welcome + the kind       of work will vary. There is something for everyone! Next meeting: Wednesday,       October 23 | 12 PM – 1PM | Mills Library Room L304 (third floor) Please note: This       committee is ratified after every strike vote and is generally tasked       with organizing pickets and other essential duties that arise in the       unique event of a strike. Forming this committee does not mean       that we are any closer to having to call a strike. It simply       means that we are making the necessary preparations, just in case.
