Members of the union representing college professors, librarians and counsellors are drawing on a pool of union dues paid over years to picket for more full-time positions and academic voice, among other things.

Why is OPSEU on strike?

Buses for the loop at the Humber North Campus have moved their stops due to the picket line. Brampton Transit, York Region and the TCC are all on alternate pick up/drop off spots near the GH and Humber campus.
