Ontario colleges urge faculty union to cancel strike vote

August 24, 2012

Ontario colleges are warning that OPSEU could trigger a strike of 10,000 faculty members as early as September 15. The College Employer Council says a strike could go ahead at that time if OPSEU goes through with its September 10 strike vote and a majority of faculty vote in favour of giving the union a strike mandate. The colleges' bargaining team has asked OPSEU to cancel its strike vote and instead work with it to reach a settlement. College Employer Council News Release
