More than 12,000 faculty at Ontario’s 24 public colleges will strike Monday after negotiations between their union and the group representing management failed Sunday evening, the Ontario Public Service Employees Union said.

“This is an official notification that all classes are currently suspended at University of Guelph-Humber as a result of the OPSEU strike commencing on Monday October 16, 2017,” read the email from Guelph-Humber.

Walsh said the school would keep students informed of all updates, inserting the link to the school website’s updates page.
