Ontario's colleges launched a website on Monday, ahead of the vote that would allow striking faculty members to see what the offer entails.

Some 12,000 Ontario college professors, instructors, counsellors, and librarians haven't been at work since October 15.

Centennial College student Lovey Reid told CP24 last week that the strike has been "very stressful" for students.

Now, as their teachers represented by Ontario Public Service Employees Union enter the fifth week on picket lines, "that anxiety, that nervousness" students are feeling "has only been growing", said Ryan Huckla, president of Niagara College's student administrative council. Some of the issues students are facing include paying for unexpected costs like additional rent or canceling long-standing travel plans to be home with their families.

"We're also extending into April", Vaughn said.

This vote is scheduled to take place from Tuesday, Nov. 14 to Thursday, Nov. 16 and OPSEU is advising its members to vote no and reject the colleges' offer.

"It's about time. Now that they're going to put it in a vote, it gives you hope that it might actually end", he said.

"Anything that will help students get through this hard time is more than welcome, and we thank the minister for moving ahead with it", says Hornick in a statement.

"Students from every campus in Ontario will be filling the hallways and classes of Ontario colleges, to show to everyone, we are ready to learn", the organization says in an email sent to media outlets.

The Labour Board announced that it's set to hold a faculty vote on the employer offer-a vote the OPSEU isn't on board with.

But the union says the offer contains "serious concessions" that were not agreed to, and which would erode faculty rights and contribute to an unsustainable staffing model.

"From the union's perspective, they talk about academic control and they've really determined that it's got to be either (faculty) or (management)".
