College teachers begin preparations for possible strike/lockout
Faculty at Niagara College have been called to a meeting at the end of the week to meet with union reps.
OPSEU says in an email, while we hope there won't be a work stoppage, we do need to prepare in the event one happens.
The meeting Friday will deal with strike/lockout preparation and give teachers their first chance to sign up for picket duty.
Ontario's 12 thousand college faculty will be in a legal strike position October 15th.
One of the main issues has been over the use of part time faculty.
