Stop Ontario College Transfer Payments - Get CEC back to bargaining table
This petition had 1,856 supporters
Whereas Ontario provincial colleges receive funding from the province, and classes are currently cancelled due to an ongoing faculty strike;
And whereas the spirit of collective bargaining is such that there be consequences for both sides of the dispute;
And whereas it is not in the interest of the College Employer Council to return to the bargaining table while there is no financial consequence to the ongoing strike;
And whereas it is not in the interest of Ontario taxpayers to fund colleges at which no teaching is taking place,
We the undersigned request that the government of Ontario withhold provincial funding from the Ontario colleges for every day for which classes are cancelled due to the college faculty strike in the hopes that such action will provide incentive for the Employer Council to return to the bargaining table.
