Member Update # 3
February 14, 2013
Please note: On Friday, February 15, THERE WILL BE NO regular picket duty.
The only picket duty is the Rally which starts at 11:30 am.
On Friday, February 15, members should report at 11:30am for a solidarity rally. This rally will again build a REAL Academic X-Ring by creating a human ring around X. AUT members will be joined by supporters made up of students and Antigonish community members to encircle the campus.
For the rally, please go to your regular picket lines, except Liquor Lane and Notre Dame (due to a funeral), these pickets should instead meet at Martha Drive to join members there. Bring your pots and pans and other noisemakers to celebrate the tentative agreement reached.
This rally will also be an opportunity for us to thank our supporters and unite to take back the X before we re-enter campus for our meeting at 1:00 pm.
At 1:00 pm we will meet at the Schwartz Auditorian for the AUT Executive to present the tentative agreement and hold a ratification vote.
Sandwiches and drinks will be provided for members before the meeting. Members will be able to pick up strike pay cheques after the meeting.
Following the meeting please join us in celebrating at the Solidarity Victory Supper at the Legion. Doors open at 5:30 pm; supper will be at 6:00 pm. The social committee are in desperate need of volunteers for set up, serving and clean up. Please contact Lise at [email protected] to volunteer. Can’t wait to see you there!
The invitation poster is attached.
