Talks have resumed between the College Employer Council and the Ontario Public Service Employees Union, as the strike by about 12,000 college faculty across Ontario heads into it's fourth week. The union has raised concerns over issues involving fairness and job security for contract faculty, more academic freedom, and a better ratio of contract to full-time faculty. Durham College has confirmed that there will be no extensions into holiday time once the strike is over, but an extension of the semester remains possible.
