"None of our members want to be out here on strike", he said.
Faculty at the college in Thunder Bay, as well as several satellite campuses in northwestern Ontario, are among more than 12,000 staff from 24 Ontario public colleges who walked off the job at 12:01 a.m. Monday, after talks with the College Employer Council - which represents the colleges - failed to produce a new collective bargaining agreement.
Management's offer of a 7.75 per cent wage increase over four years was in line with deals accepted within the last few years by others in Ontario's public sector, including college support staff, said Tibbits.
"The fastest way to resolve the strike is for the union to accept the colleges' final offer, or, at the very least, put the colleges' final offer forward to its members for a vote". The strike comes after the College Employer Council (CEC) rejected a last-ditch offer from OPSEU to avoid a strike, calling for improved job security, increased academic freedom and most notably an increase in the ratio of full-time to part-time instructors in the province.
