TALKING POINTS

Chances are, if your students haven't engaged you in a discussion about the "Student Choice Initiative", they likely will. These talking points will better help you frame the issues this policy creates for everyone.

TAKING ACTION

Action gets the goods and we’re mobilizing! Over the coming months, you’ll be hearing from us about petitions, rallies, walk outs, protests, and other forms of direct action. Take a look at what we’re planning (or some of what we’ve recently done)!! To view a document, simply click on the heading.

Petition

We've created a petition that we're hoping every member of our local and the broader community will sign. You can even download a copy for yourself and get friends and colleagues to sign!

write your MPP

Members have asked about registering their displeasure with their MPP about Ford's policies. We've created a template you can send to your MPP about the recently announced post-secondary cuts. Feel free to tailor it to meet your needs!
