Background Information about the Strike

The collective agreement for academic staff (faculty, counsellors and librarians) at all of Ontario’s 24 public colleges expired on Sept. 30, 2017. No new contract agreement was reached by this date, and strike action at Ontario's public colleges, including Sheridan, began on Monday, Oct. 16.

On Sunday, Nov. 19, the provincial government passed back-to-work legislation (Bill 178), which ended the Ontario college strike. Sheridan's academic staff returned to work on Monday, Nov. 20 to prepare for classes to resume on Tuesday, Nov. 21.

For more information about the strike and related communications that were posted for Sheridan students during this period, please visit our Strike Information page.
