MoveUP members commence full strike at Capilano University
NORTH VANCOUVER, BC – Workers at Capilano University, represented by the MoveUP union, have commenced full strike action effective 7:30 a.m. on Tuesday, June 6, 2023 following three weeks of strategic job action where the university refused to return to the bargaining table.
Pickets are up at the main campus in North Vancouver, CapU Lonsdale (Shipyards building), and the Sunshine Coast campus (Sechelt). A rally will be held June 6 on the North Vancouver campus beginning at Inter River Park (1301 Lillooet Road) off of Lillooet Road, in the parking lot.
Members of the public can support the workers at Capilano University by stopping by the picket line (park at Inter River park), and signing an online petition at MoveUPTogether.ca/capilano-petition to call on the university to return to the bargaining table.
