Postdoctoral fellows at the University of Toronto have voted to be represented by the Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE) Local 3902. According to CUPE 3902, the postdocs have been organizing since January to form their own union in order to improve their working conditions. 72% of the postdocs voted to join the union. Their next step is to elect a bargaining team, who will negotiate the first collective agreement between the fellows and the university. CUPE 3902 Announcement
