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 BetterMac.ca 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.
