Mohawk College moves to alleviate students concerns ahead of possible teacher's strike

The President of Mohawk College in Hamilton has sent a notice to students regarding the possiblity of a teacher's strike.

Ron McKerlie says "No student at an Ontario college has ever lost their year due to a strike. Mohawk will make sure that all students get the opportunity to complete their semester,"

But the school is postponing its fall convocation ceremony set for October 20th.

The President is encouraging students to stay abreast of course work, readings and assignments during the strike.

The union representing college faculty announced last night it had set a strike deadline of 12:01 am, October 16th.
