If You Can Use A Fork, You May Soon Be Able to Continue Your Classes at York

Dalton McGuinty announced this morning that he is a little over a day away from introducing back-to-work legislation to immediately force an end to York University’s strike. According to a statement released on the Ontario premier’s website, McGuinty feels that “there is no reasonable prospect of a negotiated settlement between York University and CUPE Local 3903. The sides are in a clear deadlock, and despite our best efforts to bring the sides together, that has not changed.” “Having exhausted all other options,” McGuinty writes, “I will be recalling the legislature as of Sunday at 1 p.m. for the purposes of introducing back to work legislation. I am asking MPPs from all parties to provide unanimous consent for immediate passage of the bill so that students can get back to school this week.” [via 680 News]
