Minister vows re-think of college bargaining process

Deb Matthews
Ontario Advanced Education Minister Deb Matthews has ordered 24 striking colleges to create a fund to help students having to pay additional rent or cancelling travel plans.

As the Ontario government moves to end a five-week strike by legislating college instructors back to work, the Minister of Advanced Education says the province will also take a closer look at a collective bargaining process that ‘failed everybody.’
