Will OPSEU's wish come true?
Will 200000 students be out of class infinitely?
I'm not going to lie, some extra time off after Reading Week would have been amazing. But right now, I am not looking forward to a strike. Students have just gotten back into the swing of things and pushing back classes, assignments, and the school year altogether will piss off a lot of people. If the colleges don't strike, I'll still be in class until April 16, which is later than most institutions. But of course, who cares what the students think? OPSEU certainly does not.
I just want to know the answer. I'm tired of being told a number of different deadlines and hearing various stories from the news and whatnot. I just want to know whether or not the colleges are going on strike or not. I'll be annoyed if there is a strike, but I'd rather know than be left out.
Oh OPSEU and Ontario College profs, if it weren't for the students attending Ontario Colleges (and some universities), you wouldn't even have a job. Just take the 5.9 per cent increase and close your mouths. The world is practically in debt and you're worried about even more of a pay increase? Be happy you have a job. And hey, if you strike you're screwing up summer job possibilities for your students, too. Thanks.
