Sheridan College Strike: The Update

So they voted.

College instructors voted in favour of a strike mandate, although, according to the experts, they say that the possible walkout won’t occur until mid-February — a month away. Out of all the voting instructors from Ontario’s college’s, 57 per cent voted in favour of a strike. Talks will return to the bargaining table to see if both sides can come to terms.

Don’t worry, Sheridan. Things, for now, seem to be OK. Let’s give it a month and see where we’re at.

    workload from university is much harder then college, well from what i’ve seen in the two years i was there compared with the one year that i have attended sheridan. we don’t need a break, its pretty darn easy and we had extra time off compared to university students LOL. besides… a strike could push schooling into the summer, which could mean a loss of job opportunities for the summer workers, and people living off residence would have to some how spend extra to extend their stay. i think its retarded how teachers want a raise in a time of recession, and i pray for those that picket in my way when i go to school to get projects done
