Georgian students will find out today if they’ll be returning to class next week.

Since Tuesday, over 12,000 college workers have been voting on a deal put forward by the College Employer Council. This vote has been forced by the province after talks broke down between the council and faculty union representatives in early October.

The faculty has been on strike since shutting down classrooms across the province. If over 50 per cent of faculty vote to approve this deal, students could be returning to class next week.

Georgian College has put forward a tentative plan to make up for the lost class time by running classes until December 22nd, with students possible returning just over a week later.
