MPPS TO VOTE ON BACK TO WORK LEGISLATION THIS SUNDAY

Premier McGuinty will recall the Legislature at 1 pm this Sunday to pass back to work legislation, on the recommendation of his top mediator Reg Pearson.

To ensure speedy passage of the bill, we need all MPPs to vote “yes” tomorrow. We expect Liberals and Conservatives to be on side.

We need to let NDP members know how important it is that they also support this legislation.

  1. A very frustrating event that has compromised an already compromised education system. Parents need to think why our children are being taught by a growing army of MA and PhD students instead of the senior tenured profs we benefited from. While university enrollment has been expanding, funding has not. York, and every other Canadian school, has responded by hiring all the folks who are now out on strike. They make a quarter of what a prof makes and they are the ones who TEACH OUR CHILDREN.

    We as a society chose this when we support tax cuts instead of funding for post secondary education. In a sense, we have all got what we paid for. No Canadian school can claim quality at the undergraduate level. Contract faculty and mushrooming class sizes are what you get. If your kids have the grade, then send them packing to the best private American schools. Otherwise, think about what our “victory” means when the TAs and contract faculty are sent back to work. Think about the education your kids are being sent back for.

  2. I think contract faculty teach better than tenure professors.
    From my experience the teaching by tenure professors are horribly because they are lazy and don’t care about their students.
    Contract teachers are better because there is incentive for them to teach because they could get fired if they don’t teach well.
    Tenure professors don’t get fire no matter what they do.
    Fire them all and hire all teacher on contract un-unionized. So tired of these lazy fat cats whining about their overpaid jobs.
