University of Toronto contract staff vote to strike

TORONTO — Contract academic faculty at the University of Toronto have voted to strike, should they hit a wall at the bargaining table.

For only the second time in a decade, instructional assistants from the Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE) local 3902 cast their votes 92.1 per cent in favour of a strike — doubling previous voter turnout.
