On Facebook, almost 3,000 students have indicated they will attend a rally in front of the university president’s office at King’s College Circle.
Motorists can expect delays on College Street.
Another rally is planned at 7 a.m. on Thursday at the Scarborough campus. Students are planning a sit-in at the registrar’s office at 1 p.m.
On Wednesday, heated confrontations occurred outside York University’s campus as students expressed their frustrations with the ongoing strike at that university.
Picket lines blocked all entrances to the school, creating a traffic backup. Angry students yelled and screamed at picketers, and one even kicked in the direction of protesters.
Security officials at York U have notified police, as the incident occurred on city property.
York U teaching and graduate assistants have been off the job for nearly three weeks. The university plans to resume all classes by Monday.
