24 Canadian Colleges on Strike
Matt Mc Lean reports on a 24-college teacher strike in Canada on big101fm.com.
Faculty at 24 Ontario colleges have gone on strike, affecting more than 500-thousand students. The Ontario Public Services Employees Union says the two sides couldn’t resolve their differences ahead of the midnight Sunday strike deadline. There’s no indication yet when talks might resume.
The College Employer Council, which bargains for the colleges, calls the strike completely unnecessary. It says the union’s demands would have added more than 250-million dollars in annual costs.
