it is possible that the message was in support of Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE) 1334, the University of Guelph Faculty Association (UGFA) or the Steelworkers (USW) 4120.â€ â€
CUPE 1334 is currently in negotiations on a new collective agreement with the University Admin. The UGFA is the process of dfining its membership prior to crafting its first collective agreement with the University. According to the latest bulletin, the University Admin has been arguing that this union should represent those narrowly defined as "faculty" leaving others like staff veterinarians at the Animal Health Laboratory and the Veterinary Teaching Hospital as well as department heads without the protection the UGFA would provide. Lastly the USW 4120 has been hardest hit by recent budget cuts handed down from the Board of Governors due to budget shortfalls.
CUPE 1334 could not be reached for comment and University Communications & Public Affairs did not immediately return a request for comment.
