The college president announced on Friday that seven programs will have their fall intake suspended.

The union will be scrutinizing the college decisions to suspend in upcoming meetings of the College Employment Stability Committee. We have already asked the college for supporting data to understand how the college arrived at the decisions to suspend; the request includes as well  a breakdown of how the college arrived at the figure of $25 million to meet its obligations under Bill 148. We have also asked the college its intentions with respect to the affected faculty. We will be working closely with affected faculty to ensure their rights under the Collective Agreement are respected, and every effort will be made to mitigate any involuntary lay-offs or transfers. 

Pat Kennedy

President, Local 415
