York University is mistreating nurses during a global pandemic! Tell York to address the problems in the School of Nursing by bargaining effective solutions.

The School of Nursing at York University relies heavily on the work of precariously-employed Clinical Course Directors (CCDs) to train the next generation of nurses. As workers in the School of Nursing at York, CCDs are facing a number of long-standing labour issues: they have to repeatedly meet arbitrary demands to prove qualifications despite a rigorous system of checks already in place by their College; they are expected to be available 12 hours a day, 7 days a week; and they are facing increasing class sizes.

This is bad enough, but Clinical Course Directors are also nurses on the frontlines of the pandemic. They are already stretched thin, and York’s unreasonable demands only add to their burden.

CUPE 3903, the union representing Clinical Course Directors at York, has tabled comprehensive solutions to some of the worst problems facing nurses who teach at York. We are asking you to join us in demanding that York University does right by these frontline workers. 

Sign the petition to express your solidarity with the CUPE 3903 members in the School of Nursing!
