OLRB rejects union vote for Ontario College part-timers

April 21, 2008

The Ontario Labour Relations Board has decided not to allow part-time and sessional workers at the province's community colleges to vote on being represented by the Ontario Public Service Employees Union (OPSEU). OPSEU's president accuses Ontario Premier Dalton McGuinty of influencing the board's decision. Warren Thomas says the provincial government "has betrayed every college part-timer and sessional in Ontario," and adds, "to trample on the dreams and aspirations of these hardworking Ontarians is shameful and disgusting." Thomas vows to continue the union's campaign to represent part-time and sessional workers.
