Article 12 : no strikes / no lockout
12.1 The Union undertakes that there will be no strike and the Employer undertakes that there will be no lockout so long as this Agreement continues to operate. The meaning of the words strike and lockout shall be as defined in the current OLRA.
12.2 In the case of a strike called by another Union at the University:
- The Employer agrees that it shall not request, require, or direct Employees to cross a picket line to do any of the work of striking or locked-out employees of the University; nor shall it request, require, or direct Employees to do any of the work of striking or locked-out employees of the University on other premises.
- An Employee shall suffer no loss of pay provided they follow the directives issued by University Protection Services.
- The University Protection Services directives shall be posted on all CUPE Local 2626 bulletin boards and on the University's Website, and a copy shall be forwarded to the Union. The directives shall deal only with the crossing of picket lines and with the performance of the Employees' own duties.
- An Employee who is unable to report for work because of a reasonable apprehension of personal injury resulting from picket line activity shall suffer no loss in pay, provided that the Employee contacts the University Protection Services and follows reasonable instructions received from that office.
12.3 No Employee shall suffer any loss of pay, be disciplined, or penalized in any way for exercising their rights under this Article. It is understood that nothing in the foregoing shall be construed so as to diminish or eliminate any academic obligation resulting from an Employee's Student Status.
