After weeks of talks, faculty at all of Ontario’s college are officially on strike. This means that more than 12,000 Ontario public college faculty are on the picket line after talks between the OPSEU and the College Employer Council failed to produce a tentative collective agreement.
Although most full and part-time classes have been cancelled, some facilities at Sheridan College (which operates campuses in Mississauga, Brampton and Oakville) are going to remain open during the strike.
Sheridan College recently took to its website to remind students that campuses will remain open with security on site. However, the following classes and services will be suspended during the strike:
- Regularly scheduled classes for full and part time students
- Classes offered at Sheridan for joint programs with the University of Toronto at Mississauga (UTM), York and Brock Universities
- Workforce development programs (LINC, ELT, OSLT)
- School College Work Initiative programs (Early Childhood Education, Operating Systems, Introduction to Industrial Trades, Introduction to Construction Trades, Electrical, Plumbing, Precision Machining/Welding STDWD, Halton Electric, School Within a College –SWAC)
- Academic upgrading courses
- Field placements
- Internships that are supervised by faculty members in the academic union
- Athletic Therapy Clinic
- All Co-Curricular Record (CCR) Activities supervised by Faculty
