Subject: Ready to Bargain
I am a member of OPSEU CAAT-A. I am currently on strike to stand up for quality education.
There is no excusing the Council’s refusal to entertain discussions around the major issues brought to the table. These issues were democratically decided on by our 12,000 members and affirmed by the strike vote. It is the Council’s responsibility to negotiate in good faith according to the Collective Bargaining Act.
The Council remains steadfast that the only path to settlement is via its unilaterally prescribed terms.
We need the government to take all actions possible to lead faculty and students back into Ontario college classrooms. Faculty remain committed to negotiating academic freedom, equal pay for contract faculty and establishing an equitable ratio of full-time to contract positions. We need someone to negotiate with.
