General Assembly Agenda

The strike mandate that we are voting on today also requires a general assembly within 24 hours of the vote no matter what the results of the referendum.  Please find below a proposed agenda for the assembly.  Please note a speakers list will be held and the chair will have instructions to run the meeting in an orderly and timely manner in keeping with the spirit of Robert’s Rules without necessarily following them in a rigid and inflexible manner.   In short the goal is to keep the atmosphere of the meeting casual and convivial while insuring all points of view are heard as part of an open and public debate.

WOMENS STUDIES (WSSA) WHEREAS CLAUSES:

 

-Whereas the tuition increase is sexist. It will affect women more than men and go a long way towards keeping gender inequality in place.

 

-Whereas the tuition increase is racist. People of color and racialized people will suffer more from this increase.

 

-Whereas the tuition increase is classist. That tuition is only one portion of what we pay for university. This portion is about to get bigger and peoplefrom lower income backgrounds will be more affected.

-Whereas the tuition increase is ableist. Marginalisation is also about not being seen as this able bodied, this able minded person.

-Whereas the tuition increase will not solve the problem the government is posing as the reason for the increase
