AASUA Council adopted the following motion:
“Recognizing the urgency of taking concerted action on climate change, the AASUA expresses its solidarity with Global Climate Strike 2019.”
On September 27, 2019, there will be a walkout by U of A students from their classes at 11:30 am to join strikers at the main quad. This group will march from campus to the legislature — across the high-level bridge.
AASUA members who are able to join this march can find more details here:
Those who do not wish to march may instead attend the legislature between 1:00 pm and 1:30 pm.
Please note that the AASUA does not advocate for cancellation of classes by our academic staff nor do we encourage them to walk away from their job responsibilities as covered by the collective agreement.
