College students plan rally as faculty strike drags on

CKTB News- college strike


As the college teacher's strike enters week three with no end in sight, a group representing students will rally this week at Queen's Park.

The College Student Alliance have a rally planned for Wednesday afternoon outside the legislature to put pressure on the province to kickstart contract talks.

CSA President Joel Willett says although a college semester has never been lost because of a faculty strike, students are increasingly concerned about this becoming a reality.

Last week, government officials said they would not intervene in the strike, preferring instead to let the bargaining process play out.
