Dr Walsh said the University of Guelph-Humberwas hopefully that talks would continue through the weekend with a “possibility that could classes could fully resume early next week.”

After the College Employer Council and the Ontario Public Sector Employees Union could not reach an agreement at the bargaining table by deadline, a strike launched on Oct 16.

GH decided to shut down on campus classes during the college union strike as it could not offer its programs in full if college faculty were picketing.

However, GH started classes online once again on Oct 30 for classes that were taught by university faculty.

Dear University of Guelph-Humber Students:

As you know, negotiations have resumed between OPSEU and the College Employer Council. We hope a tentative agreement will be reached between the parties, which would then result in the full resumption of classes at the University of Guelph-Humber.

We are hopeful that talks will continue through this weekend, and there is a possibility that classes could fully resume early next week.

We will post updates and communicate with you as soon as information is available.Again, no decisions have been made.

As this is a dynamic situation, things may change quickly. We encourage you to keep up with your studies and to monitor the Guelph-Humber website and your email regularly for updates and information.

As always, thank you for your patience, understanding and support during this difficult period.
