Faculty member Kevin Corriveau said he was happy members overwhelmingly voted to reject the latest offer.

The colleges were informed of the results just after voting ended at 10 a.m.by the Ontario Labour Relations Board.

According to reports on social media, striking faculty at Ontario's colleges have rejected a final offer. "This strike has gone on for too long - and we still need to resolve it and get our students and faculty back in class".

The almost 12,000 professors, instructors, counsellors and librarians represented by the Ontario Public Service Employees Union walked off the job at the province's 24 colleges last month.

Confederation College student union president Jodi Afonso, who was part of a contingent of student association leaders to meet with Advanced Education Minister Deb Matthews at Queen's Park earlier this week, urged both the colleges and educators to work together and come up with a fair agreement.

Fanshawe College has cancelled its upcoming Open House and says there are plans to ensure students will still be able to finish their studies.

About 500,000 college students have been out of class for more than a month, now the longest strike action on record by Ontario's 12,000 college professors, instructors, counsellors and librarians in Ontario.

An natural disaster of 7.2 magnitude has hit Iraq southeast of the city of As-Sulaymaniyah, according to US Geological Survey . The epicenter of the quake is 32 kilometers southwest of Halabja near the Iranian border, data from the USGS website showed.

The College Employer Council recently called on OPSEU to suspend the strike and re-start classes.

"It is unfortunate that council extended our strike and kept students out of class for an extra two weeks by calling for this vote", said Hornick, "But now that it's over, it's time to move on". "We are pleased that our bargaining unit has said they are ready to go and get back to the table with the college council".

"I see a contract that is going backwards, not forward", said Foster, wearing a sandwich board that read 'ask me why I voted no.' "We're not asking for the world, we're asking for fairness".

Charmish Patel, an worldwide student studying aerospace manufacturing, was on campus to try to seek answers about how long the strike might last.

If the deal had been accepted, it was expected that students and staff would have been back to classes either Tuesday or Wednesday. There were posts in oppositions to the ad campaign, with some people saying they stand with the faculty.

Some students in Ontario have raised the possibility of a class action lawsuit against the Colleges, wanting at least a partial refund of tuition, while others have mused about quitting college, feeling their semester and school year is lost.
