York University Strike Information

CUPE 3903, the union representing Teaching Assistants, Graduate Assistants, and Contract Faculty at York University, began strike action on Feb. 26. We've created this site to house information you might need to navigate the disruption.

Other important information:

  • Police are monitoring the picket lines; making sure everyone stays safe
  • Some roads into York Campus are blocked by picketers so you may experience a longer than usual wait to drive in and out of campus
  • If stopped, please use your virtual or physical OneCard to verify your status as a Seneca student or employee
  • We strongly encourage you to consider alternative modes of transportation into York Campuses, including public transit while the strike is on:
      • The York University and Pioneer Village subway stops can bring you directly onto the Keele Campus
      • TTC buses will be diverted outside of the Keele Campus, including avoiding the blockages at NW Gate and Howard Moscoe at our Pioneer Village subway station
      • ZUM buses will be dropping passengers off at Steeles Ave opposite Founders Road And Steeles Avenue at the Northwest Gate near Pioneer Village Station
  • The Seneca Campus Shuttle buses will continue to service Seneca@York
  • If you have any safety concerns, Campus Security are available. Reach them via phone at 416.764.0911 or the SenecaSAFE app
