Students want to be reimbursed if college workers strike

Ontario College of Teachers strike

She's not convinced her request will be answered.

Willett says students also have financial concerns.

So many questions and few answers.

Faculty at the college in Thunder Bay, as well as several satellite campuses in northwestern Ontario, are among more than 12,000 staff from 24 Ontario public colleges who walked off the job at 12:01 a.m. Monday, after talks with the College Employer Council - which represents the colleges - failed to produce a new collective bargaining agreement.

The three campuses are open and student services are available, but anyone wanting to enter may experience delays due to the picket lines.

Canadore's president and chief executive officer issued a media release stating the college's latest offer was fair.

While the strike plays out he said the school's campuses will remain open with non-academic services, such as counselling and library services, continuing to operate.

The final offer would increase salaries by 7.75% over four years, raising new full-time faculty maximum to $115,378, increase a new partial-load hourly maximum of $154.26, improve conversion of contract faculty to full-time positions, and provide more faculty autonomy over personal workloads along with enhanced benefits.

George Burton, the Canadore College President, is disappointed that it has come to a strike.

One of OPSEU's proposals during negotiations called for the number of full-time faculty to match the number of faculty members on contract.

"The fastest way to resolve the strike is for the union to accept the colleges' final offer, or, at the very least, put the colleges' final offer forward to its members for a vote".

Faculty at St. Clair College strike at the Cabana Rd. entrance, October 16, 2017.

He said 67 per cent of Canadore's faculty is part-time and that number is only expected to rise.

However the college pays these part-time workers significantly less than their full-time counterparts.

"It's just really unfair", he said. "Many have started to do the job but quickly realize it's not worth it".

Collège Boréal advised its students of the strike on Sunday evening, assuring them "no Ontario college student has ever lost a year because of a strike".

"Students' want to learn". (Those taught by Mohawk faculty are cancelled).

The last college teachers strike in Ontario was in 2006.

More than 500,000 students will be affected by the action. "Will the Premier get both sides back to the bargaining table today?"
