New contract issued for college faculty

TORONTO—An arbitrator appointed to settle a contract dispute with Ontario college faculty after a five-week strike granted them a 7.75 percent raise over four years in a decision issued yesterday.

The 12,000 professors, instructors, counsellors, and librarians were legislated back to work last month and outstanding issues were sent to binding mediation-arbitration.

Province moving to end strike at colleges

TORONTO—Ontario's Liberal government is moving to introduce back-to-work legislation that would end a nearly five-week strike by college faculty, though opposition from the NDP means it may not happen quickly.

Premier Kathleen Wynne said unanimous support of the legislation would have meant students could return to class Monday morning.
