Back-to-work legislation is not an option that will work in the interests of students. If imposed, there will be absolutely no trust in the process since back-to-work legislation could impose not only an arbitrator, but even a contract.

Yet colleges received $50 million less than required just to maintain the status quo, never mind making improvements.

We're shocked that there's so much funding from unexpected revenue sources and at this point the government is allowing tuition fees to be increase and the college strike to persist.
