Toronto – More than 12,000 Ontario public college faculty will be on the picket line rather than in their classrooms on Monday morning after talks between the Ontario Public Service Employees Union (OPSEU) and the College Employer Council failed to produce a tentative collective agreement.
Toronto – The union bargaining team for Ontario public college faculty has tabled its final offer to the College Employer Council in a bid to avert a strike at 12:01 a.m. Monday.
The path to a fair settlement: faculty table final offer to avert strike
Three critical issues remain – 50:50 ratio of full-time to contract faculty; job security for partial-load faculty; and academic freedom
More than 12,000 OPSEU college faculty members at colleges across the province continue to work towards a fair contract. I am asking for your support as we get close to the Monday, October 16 strike deadline.
With their latest bulletin, the College Employer Council is once again misleading college faculty, students, and the Ontario public. They say their final offer will create full-time positions and increase faculty autonomy. In fact, it will do exactly the opposite.
