Legislation’s been introduced at Queen’s Park that would end the two-month strike at York University that’s affected tens of thousands of students.
If passed, it would refer any outstanding issues between the school and some 3,000 graduate teaching assistants, contract faculty and graduate research assistants to binding mediation-arbitration.
The two sides would have five days to agree on a mediator-arbitrator before one would be appointed.
The government had a commission look into the dispute and says the decision to introduce legislation comes after commissioner William Kaplan reported the two sides had reached an impasse.
The strike began March 5 and the province says nearly 40,000 students have seen at least one of their courses affected.

Students who drop out of their fall-winter program can get a credit allowing them to retake the same course, or take a different one, before the end of 2019 without incurring any additional costs.
