Yep… no negotiations were even started yet concerning the strike, which signifies we might very lose over half of our term lecture-wise. Fortunately, we do have enough tools to still get a good part of the work done while the college is off limits.
The first year students will be hit very hard by this strike… they may lose everything, fuck. -_-
Oh… and the weather’s messed up… it’s snowing, yup. O_o
It’s snowing?! We aren’t getting anything here in NS…I want it to snow…sniff
Er I mean that’s pretty frigging bad. I remember when the teachers here went on strike for more money and that was chaos…a lot of students were pretty pissed off, so I can imagine how many people feel about the CLOSING of the school. Education, more importantly, college education is at stake here and that’s really serious. I wonder what the maintainance are asking and being refused to go on strike like this…terrible
Good idea. Students shouldn’t have to lose out on an education and be charged a semester’s fee if they can’t even attend class because of unsanitary conditions. And even IF you can do the work and class at home, some of the money that goes into tuition is used for school services, like tutoring, counselling and everything else. And if the school is too unsafe to use these services, then you’re paying for nothing.
I’m sorry to hear this has gone on so long, DG… all I can do is hope that things turn out better soon.
