OPSEU says the offer allows the colleges to continue to favour contract and non-full time employees with restriction, to avoid paying "equal pay for equal work" for contract faculty, decreasing the percentage of full-time jobs in colleges and more.
With the vote set to begin Tuesday and end Thursday, the council was reaching out directly to faculty to address what is called the union's "continued misrepresentation" of the contract offer.

The offer includes a 7.75 per cent salary increase over four years, improved benefits and several measures to tackle concerns regarding part-time faculty.
But the union said the offer contains "serious concessions" that were not agreed to, and which would erode faculty rights and contribute to an unsustainable staffing model.
"Nothing has been removed, nothing has been added that will negatively impact faculty - these are positive gains", she said.
OPSEU also issued a statement Monday morning, advising teachers "to stand strong and vote to reject" the college's offer.
"From the union's perspective, they talk about academic control and they've really determined that it's got to be either (faculty) or (management). Knowing there actually is an end in sight is a good feeling because we've been waiting around to see what will happen".
