Ontario government passes legislation ending five-week college strike

20 November 2017

The legislation was initially introduced Thursday evening after 86 per cent of Ontario Public Service Employees Union (OPSEU) faculty voted to reject the College Employer Council's (CEC) Nov. 6 offer. The legislation was debated between the New Democratic Party, Liberal and Conservative parties through special weekend sittings and eventually passed on Sunday.
