Colleges launch website for faculty vote

Striking Ontario college teachers will begin voting today on a contract offer that, if accepted, could send about 500,000 students back to the classroom as early as next Tuesday.

Canadore students will join their brethren from across Ontario for the #ASSTOCLASS movement. I look forward to working directly with student leaders and colleges on how we can lessen the impact of the strike on students.

MacKenzie, along with hundreds of other students, joined faculty and staff at Sheridan College's Trafalgar campus Monday to rally for fair wages and employment security for faculty members.

For Melissa MacKenzie Cornwall, P.E.I., a fourth year student in Sheridan College's musical theatre performance program, it means standing in solidarity with her faculty and professors.

"The thing is, they're looking for answers and there's just so much uncertainty about the strike, and whether or not they will strike a deal", he said.

The Labour Board announced that it's set to hold a faculty vote on the employer offer-a vote the OPSEU isn't on board with. "We are not going to pay for anything until we're back in class".

Koike resigns as leader of Hope party to focus on being governor
After stepping down, Koike is expected to concentrate on her duties as governor of the capital. The bubble burst when she fumbled a merger with the then-main opposition Democratic Party.

"This is not a protest but a peaceful sit in and demonstration of the power of the student voice".

"We have taken a neutral stance in the negotiations and simply offer a solution that respects the democratic process but does so in a way that allows Ontario's students to continue with their semester and give them a fighting chance of graduating on time". "This event is aimed at delivering the message that politics should not stand in the way of our future", organizers wrote in an email to media.

Although Niagara College's student union is not officially sanctioning that action, Huckla said students are welcome to participate if they choose.

The CEC is negotiating a new contract with the Ontario Public Sector Employee's Union.

But the union said the offer contains "serious concessions" that were not agreed to, and which would erode faculty rights and contribute to an unsustainable staffing model. "All I can say is this isn't true". "The best way for the colleges to reach a collective agreement is to negotiate, not to force a vote on an offer that has already been rejected by the faculty bargaining team".

Speaking to CP24 on Tuesday morning, RM Kennedy, the chair of OPSEU's college division, said the council has been "completely unwilling" to address the core issues.
