How can I show support?

(Some of these we came up with, some were inspired by CUPE 2424’s Student FAQ and from OPIRG Carleton’s weekly newsletter.)

  1. Share a testimonial in support of Carleton’s counsellors, or share the form so that others can.
  2. Sign your name and send Administration an email using CUPE’s pre-made email form!
  3. Tweet your support (or testimonial!) using the hashtag  #cupe2424 (other good hashtags: #bettertogether, #carletonuniversity, #canlab, #distinctlycarleton)
  4. Check out, like, and follow the CUPE 2424 social media (links to the right).
  5. Email Carleton Administration and tell them how CUPE 2424 staff at Carleton help you in your life, and urge them to allow CUPE 2424 to keep their pension language and feel secure in their financial future.

  6. Join the picket line when you can. Maybe it’s for half an hour before class, maybe it’s half an hour before catching the bus. (Just make sure to be patient and respectful of the picketers, and follow their lead!)
  7. Pick up and wear some buttons to show your support of CUPE 2424. They are available at Mike’s Place Pub (209 UC), GSA (6th floor UC), or at the picket line table (remember to be patient and respectful).
  8. Small things. Learn about the strike from the CUPE 2424 website (links to the right). Be kind to pedestrians who are crossing the picket line. Be respectful of any police presence. And wish the picketers good luck as you pass by.
