Thank you all who have voted, as members across 24 public colleges overwhelmingly approved a new three-year collective agreement.

“Our college system can’t begin to operate without part-time support staff,” noted OPSEU/SEFPO President Warren (Smokey) Thomas. “They’re an indispensable component of the college system.”

Part-time college support staff had been without a contract since February 1, 2021, and the deal provides for a one per cent annual wage increase – the maximum allowed under Bill 124 – and carries important job-security measures.
