Bargaining Survey for full-time and part-time members

To all full-time and part-time members,  

You and your co-workers do important work to create a safe, healthy and accessible campus for the U of T community. Our working conditions are students’ learning conditions. During the pandemic, CUPE 3261 members have continued to serve the campus community through many challenges. Many of our co-workers were laid off, and our work was contracted out by the university. Though we managed to push for strong health and safety on campus, and secure some benefits for our laid off comrades, the threat of contracting out still affects our local’s bargaining power and your future at U of T.
This next round of negotiations is an opportunity to fight for important improvements for our future, and together, we can tackle the threat of contracting out.
Your Collective Agreement expired on June 30, 2021, but its terms are still in effect until we reach a new agreement with the university. Your Union Negotiating Committee is preparing to negotiate and wants your feedback through this short survey. All personal identifying information will be kept secure and will not be shared with the employer.
It is very important that you and your co-workers fill out this survey.

Please spread the word and share the link:
If you have any questions about the survey, or if you would like a copy of the survey in a language other than English, please contact Allan James at

We are also looking for members to join the Bargaining Support Team. The bargaining support team’s task is to help improve engagement with CUPE members and strengthen our bargaining campaign. If you are interested, simply fill out the form here
In solidarity,
