6,000 teaching assistants go on STRIKE at the University of Toronto

by Simona Chiose

Six thousand teaching assistants at the University of Toronto are on strike, after a meeting Friday afternoon in which TAs voted to reject the deal their bargaining committee and the university had agreed to 12 hours before.

The rejection means that barring a weekend deal, undergraduate students on the school’s three campuses will be seeing their teaching assistants on the picket lines Monday morning. In a statement, the union left open the possibility that a deal with the university could still be reached over the weekend.
