Ont. Gov: Not our problem, they are autonomous

Ontario’s Minister of Training, Colleges, and Universities is dismissing the idea of provincial bargaining for university employees in Ontario. He cites the “autonomy” of universities as one of the reasons the provincial government will not involve itself.

When did academic freedom (autonomy) include the finances of the university itself?

Of course, the big concern with province-wide bargaining is the strength in numbers it gives the union side.
