The sudden closure of 14 Ontario branches of Everest College stranded 2,400 students and left 450 staff without a job. The Ontario government is directly responsible for this disaster, which must serve as an important warning and wake-up call.
Faculty represented by the Ontario Public Service Employees Union (OPSEU) question the commitment of Ontario colleges to provide faculty the right conditions to deliver stand-alone four-year nursing degrees.
OPSEU is calling on the Globe and Mail to remove Seneca College from its co-sponsored “Greater Toronto's Top Employers”. This supplement, released on December 8, ignores that Seneca College denies many of the listed benefits to 63% of its employees, who are non-unionized, temporary workers.
Seneca President David Agnew and Vice-President Academic Joy McKinnon plan to reduce the pay, hours, benefits, and working conditions of hundreds of contract faculty at Seneca, starting January. They don’t want you to know how this staffing change will hurt students.
