Chip in to keep stories like these coming.

With over 9,000 graduate students on strike at both the University of Toronto and York, we need a special kind of roundup. Given that both the employers and workers in these labour disputes are paid to reason, educate and argue, you can imagine that there has been a lot of discourse in and around this strike.

Two of three bargaining units still on strike at York University

Some students were asked to cross the picket line today as classes resumed in five departments on York campus.

The University's Deans and Provost met yesterday to determine which faculties, if any, would resume holding classes. They determined that five schools, including Engineering, Administration, Nursing, Human Resources and the School of Business would reopen despite the ongoing strike.

The decision was made on Tuesday, responding to the results of Monday's ratification vote in which two-thirds of striking York University workers voted to reject the administration's latest offer and remain on strike.
