Thousands of academic workers at York University go on strike

Some students at Toronto's York University are worried about falling behind on their school work after a union representing 3,000 academic workers said the university didn't meet their demand to "address the affordability crisis" and the workers went on strike. Dozens of union members including contract faculty, teaching and graduate assistants, research assistants and part-time librarians rallied on campus, outside York University Station in the city's north end.
