Bargaining Updates from OPSEU:


Mediator Brian Keller has imposed a “total communications blackout on negotiations” as mediation continues between Ontario’s public college faculty, represented by OPSEU/SEFPO, and the employer, the College Employer Council.

Until the blackout is lifted, OPSEU/SEFPO will be unable to provide further information on the progress of negotiations.
