We Demand that the College Employer Council Donate their Salaries to a Student Bursary
This petition had 3,029 supporters
If the College Employer Council continues to refuse to negotiate and forces a strike at Ontario’s 24 colleges, students and faculty lose greatly.
Students lose important instruction time and value for their tuition dollar.
Faculty members lose valuable time with their students and their income for the length of the strike.
In contrast, the College Employer Council and senior College Administrators lose absolutely nothing.
In fact, the College Employer Council and College Administrators actually stand to gain from a faculty strike. For the length of a strike, they do not have to pay 12,000 faculty members. Even though students have their classes canceled, colleges get to keep the students’ tuition. Even though faculty get no pay, administrators get to keep cashing their paycheques.
For that reason, we petition the College Employer Council and senior College Administrators to donate their daily salaries to a student bursary for the length of the strike. We are hoping that this donation would offset the impact on students, and encourage The Council to come to a speedy resolution, and to get students and faculty back in the classroom.
