U. of Toronto T.A.s Reject Contract, Continue Strike

March 23, 2015

Teaching assistants at the University of Toronto have rejected a tentative deal to settle a strike that started Feb. 27. The union announced that 992 members voted to ratify the deal, while 1,101 voted against. While the proposed agreement would have raises wages, some have said that the deal did not provide enough. The university issued a statement this morning from Angela Hildyard, vice president of human resources and equity, in which she said, “We continue to be in close contact with the provincial mediator and remain committed to finding a solution to this impasse that would end the strike and allow affected students to complete their academic term without further disruption."
