The Canadian Union of Public Employees local 2361, who represents custodians, groundskeepers and skilled workers at Western, have set a potential strike date for this Saturday at 12:01 a.m.. To gage its potential effects, we sent out a Gazette reporter to scoop up the dirt on how such a strike would affect campus life.

"It'll suck big time. What's going to happen if they're on strike for months?"

– Jonathan Bendiner, Honours Economics IV

"The situation would be very unheralding."

– Mubaraka Kasozi, Honours Business Administration I

"I hope the students will take initiative and clean up after themselves."

– Nick East, Administrative and Commercial Studies II
