Unofficial Results: Narrow majority of Ontario college faculty accept final
offer

51.25% support offer in provincial vote

Close vote requires official review by the Ontario Labour Relations Board

TORONTO, Feb. 10 /CNW/ - Unofficial results indicate that a 51.25 per cent majority of college faculty accepted the colleges' final offer. The official final vote will be determined after a review of all the ballots, including segregated ballots and mail-in ballots, by the Ontario Labour Relations Board (OLRB).

"We are pleased that so many faculty saw this offer as fair and reasonable and one that they could accept," said Dr. Rachael Donovan, chair of the colleges' bargaining team. "We will now have to wait for the official province-wide results that the OLRB will certify as quickly as possible. Obviously, we hope that the official results will be available soon. We appreciate how anxious our students and our faculty members are about the results."

The colleges' final offer provides workload and salary improvements for faculty, including a 5.9 per cent salary increase that moves the maximum salary to more than $102,000 by September 2011. The colleges' workload improvements include giving faculty more control over how workload is assigned.
