Students receive a lesson in collective bargaining

Hundreds of York University students, who remain shut out of classes because of a strike by part-time workers, are taking their frustrations to the Internet. There are at least four Facebook groups with close to 800 members.

Classes have been cancelled since Thursday when 3,400 teaching assistants, graduate assistants and contract faculty walked off the job. The last strike at the school lasted 11 weeks and the union said the workers are prepared to stay out that long again.

The union has scheduled a news conference on the picket line at noon, Monday.
