The University of Guelph-Humber is the only post-secondary institution of its kind, and that rings true through a strike as well.
Due to a deadline passing for negotiations between the Ontario Public Services Employees Union and the Ontario Employers Council on Sunday, a strike came into effect on Oct. 16.
Many Humber College professors The Post has contacted say the students are on their side with the demands they have to increase full-time positions, among other negotiation items.
Guelph-Humber shut down due to not being able to “offer classes and programs in their entirety to our entire student base.”
However, many U of GH students have expressed their distaste at the classes being cancelled on social media.
The U of GH is the only university shutting down classes because of the strike in Ontario, but many hope for a quick resolution to they can return to their studies.
