The Ontario government has announced its intention to introduce legislation later today to end the province-wide faculty strike. The legislature is expected to sit this weekend to vote on the legislation. If the legislation is passed this weekend, students will be back in the classroom on Tuesday, November 21.
“We are very anxious to welcome our students back to the classroom and turn our energies toward a successful completion of the term,” said Niagara College president Dan Patterson. “In anticipation of a quick return, we are hard at work ensuring that information, resources and support are firmly in place for students when classes resume.”
Faculty will return to work on the weekday immediately following the passage of the government’s legislation to complete final preparations for the return to class. If the bill passes over the weekend, faculty would return Monday.
Niagara College will continue to provide updates as new information becomes available. Students and faculty should check the College’s website and social media channels regularly.
