Postdocs and Research Scientists have officially paused our strikes.
Research Scientists and Postdocs have officially paused our strikes, following a collective decision made at membership meetings & the straw polls. Results of the straw polls that closed this morning are below:
For Research Scientists, 21.5% of the unit voted to continue striking until the end of the ratification vote, and 78.5% voted no.
For Postdocs, 12% of the unit voted to continue striking until the end of the ratification vote, and 88% voted no.
This means that the strike for both units is officially paused pending a successful ratification vote.
