Offer rejected, college strike continues at Sheridan College's Mississauga and Brampton campuses

Striking faculty reject colleges' contract offer

The results of the balloting were shared with both the College Employer Council (CEC), which bargains on behalf of the colleges, and the Ontario Public Sector Employees Union, which represents the 12,000 workers and were then made public.

Faculty went on strike October 16. The two sides were bargaining when the Council announced November 6 that it would ask the The Ontario Labour Relations Board to hold a vote.

Year one student Cassandra Augustine-Goncaldef says she is living in student housing off residence and is anxious about the financial impact the strike will have on her.

According to reports on social media, striking faculty at Ontario's colleges have rejected a final offer.

The union refused to agree and instead demanded that the colleges accept the $5,000 payment to faculty.

Faculty were also seeking academic freedom, which one official from the Ontario Public Service Employees Union called the "core - it is the crux - around our issue of quality education".

Local OPSEU representatives and student reps were not immediately available for comment late Thursday morning.

What they're really anxious about is the audience who will be turned off by just one number: the Rotten Tomatoes score . Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice received a 27 percent rating a year ago and Suicide Squad got just 26 percent.

There will be no classes or exams held between December 23 and January 2018.

Cameron White, a student in the pre-trades program, said students are caught in the middle of the dispute.

"Students are suffering financially, emotionally and academically", tweeted the College Student Alliance.

"We will not speculate (on that possibility)". "At a time when we were only a few steps away from getting a deal, they overplayed their hand and robbed students of two weeks of their education. Bargaining will continue", Webb said.

The back-to-work legislation comes after Ontario college faculty voted overwhelmingly to reject a contract offer from management.

The results mean students will not be able to resume classes at this time. "This strike has gone on for too long - and we still need to resolve it and get our students and faculty back in class", wrote Sonia Del Missier, Colleges bargaining team chair.

As a next step, the college bargaining team will be in touch with the provincially appointed mediator to seek his direction to the parties. "It makes sense for them but we can't really do much about it now", White said.
