Administrators at the University of Toronto have consistently engaged in spin tactics and deception when explaining the offer they were willing to make the graduate students, now on strike, who largely make up CUPE 3902 Unit 1. These tactics are employed to distract the public from the fact that these crucial employees have guaranteed funding of only $15,000, putting them at 35 per cent below the poverty line.
