Sixty-three per cent of York University's CUPE 3903 members have voted against the school's latest offer, so the 76-day strike will continue as frustration grows among students.

About 3,300 contract faculty members, teaching assistants and graduate assistants were expected to vote on the deal.

The voting began Monday morning and polls closed at 7 p.m. Tuesday.

Tyler Shipley, spokesperson for CUPE Local 3903, said earlier that union members would reject the offer. He said the university simply stalled negotiations for two weeks by forcing a vote on the contract.

The university had called the offer "very generous."

The main point of contention between the two sides surrounds job security for contract staff.

About 50,000 students have been without classes since November 6, 2008.
