Congratulations York U students, you're FINALLY back to class... how does your bum feel?
Am i the only one who thinks this strike was absolutely insane? This kind of shit should honestly be illegal! For starters, how could McGuinty and the provincial government let this nonsense go on for so long? In what has become possibly the most ridiculously drawn out strike in the history of Toronto University's our provincial government did absolutely nothing to intervene! Back to work legislation was said to have been discussed but then later vetoed due to the fact that it may be taken up in court. SO FUCKING WHAT!?!?! At the very least you could have put some pressure on the two sides of this dispute in an attempt to get students back to class sooner! So while our pussy hole government sat back and watched York faculty, teachers assistants and the almighty CUPE let this contract dispute draw out for 3 damn months, the students were left completely hijacked. My question is how the hell did we let it get this far? This is the most disgusting and utterly selfish thing I've ever seen in my life. As a Union steward myself, i can say from a Union standpoint that there are lines you just don't cross... CUPE along with York contract faculty and teachers assistants took a gigantic leap over this line leaving students with their pockets turned out while they watched their semester disappear.
Shame on you York faculty, CUPE, and Dalton McGuinty... at a certain point somebody needs to intervene, somebody has to step in and look out for the little guy. The students didn't stand to gain anything from this, they had absolutely no part in this senseless strike but yet were the ones who ended up suffering in the end! Back to work legislation was passed in 1984 and 1989 college disputes so why did this ass clown McGuinty sit back on this one? This strike could have been stopped a long time ago, shame on all of you!
