Labour Struggles in the City: UBC's CUPE 2278 On Strike

5:00pm - 5:59pm

We examine a current labour struggle in the city. The City talks with executive members from CUPE 2278, the local representing UBC teaching assistants, markers, tutors, and instructors at the English Language Institute. We’ll discuss why the union is currently engaged in a job action within the global and local contexts of neoliberalism and labour mobilizations.
