Two rallies will be held on Thursday as the strike by college workers enters day four.

Members of the Ontario Public Services Employees Union and other labour groups will gather at noon at York University’s Keele Campus, in a show of solidarity for the 12,000 striking professors, librarians and counsellors.

Also at noon, students will be rallying in front of the Ministry of Education, located at Bay Street and Bloor Street West. They will then walk to the legislature, asking MPPs to help get teachers back to work.

Talks broke off between the colleges and the union last week and no new talks are planned.
