    It would be very interesting to analyze and discuss the possible reason(s) for the wide spread in results from the colleges. Does it have anything to do with the percentage of partial load vs. full time and was there reason for them to vote differently? Did it come down to the OPSEU locals and their presentations to faculty in their respective colleges? What other explanations are there?

    Now the real fun begins! Let’s see what surprises the college bargaining team has in store!

  2. My initial guess was that GTA-area colleges would be lower on average, but I don’t think that the numbers bear this out. It might just have to do with the level of organization and activism for a “NO” vote on each campus. I think that the average when negotiations began was somewhere slightly less than 70% yes — the question was then well a NO side could mobilize.

    I’m planning on devoting a post to the various lies that the NO side had to resort to, later on.
