Statement from Dianne Cunningham Minister of Training, Colleges and Universities

Ministry of Colleges and Universities

TORONTO, Jan. 5 /CNW/ - It is long past time for all parties at York University to put the interests of the students first, and do everything necessary to ensure that classes resume immediately.
I'm pleased to see that contract faculty and the university administration have reached an agreement. However, in the interest of York's students, I would hope that all parties will now allow students to return to the classroom as negotiations resume between the remaining units and the administration.
I call upon the entire York University community to demonstrate a commitment to students and resume classes as soon as possible.
