WELLAND, Ont. — Niagara College has notified students that due to the college faculty in Ontario going on strike, all academic and apprenticeship programs at Niagara College are suspended and classes are cancelled.
The Niagara College campuses will remain open and the college’s administration stated in a press release that all non-academic services and activities will continue to run as scheduled.
Additional information on the strike and its impact on college programs and on students can be found here.
Faculty at 24 Ontario colleges went on strike late Sunday evening, affecting more than 500,000 students, after the Ontario Public Services Employees Union (OPSEU) and College Employer Council, which bargains for the colleges, could not resolve their differences.
OPSEU says the instructors are asking for improvements to job security and for the faculty to have a strong voice in academic decision making.
