Students from every campus in Ontario are being urged to fill the hallways and classes of Ontario colleges 'to show to everyone we are ready to learn'. "The website has been amazingly done and has a great open letter sent to OPSEU and CEC", including a mandate written by students.
Now, as their teachers represented by Ontario Public Service Employees Union enter the fifth week on picket lines, "that anxiety, that nervousness" students are feeling "has only been growing", said Ryan Huckla, president of Niagara College's student administrative council. "It's just giving them more money to argue over".
"It's getting really tight and that's why we are hoping we are going to reject this deal by Thursday when the vote is over and we are going to be sitting in a room waiting for the employer council to come back", Kennedy added. "This is not a protest but a peaceful sit-in and demonstration of the power of the student voice. 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.
Matthews said she "will work with students and colleges starting immediately to develop the parameters of the fund".
"When we look at how the colleges set up programs and how they continue to ensure programs are relevant, you need the input of your key stakeholders", including employers, industry representatives and graduates, she said.
During the College Employer Council webcast, Del Missier assured teachers that the contract offer which OPSEU unanimously recommended against supporting "contains all of the items that we and the union team agreed upon". Union leadership has been telling its members to reject the offer. "All I can say is this isn't true".
The colleges have said the latest offer includes a 7.75 per cent raise over four years, improved benefits, and measures to address concerns regarding part-time faculty. "If that means renegotiating or giving the faculty members a better offer, then that's the way this strike will end". It has been posted at College Vote along with a transcript from the call.
