Who's jobs are on strike for the college support staff in Ontario?

  I applied for a job at a college in town to be a part time janitor, seriously forgetting that the colleges support staff were on strike. Now that I've suddenly gotten an interview (conspicuosly, on a Sunday after five) the realization has come to me. I called a contact number on the OPSEU page, late tonight to see if this was a scab possition, and he told me to call him Monday morning for the answer. I don't know shit about shit, when it comes to who's on strike (namely whether the Janitorial job is a scab job) and I was hoping you well informed babblers could fill me in. I'm getting nowhere with my google search in finding out. and I need to know before the interview.

Hello from The Redneck Party USA

Hello Folks!

We have created a Grassroots Movement called Redneck Party. We take our name from the "Redneck War" of 1921. Google it! My people marched with red bandannas tied around their necks so they wouldn't shoot each other. Seriously though, amidst being called commies they were some of the most courageous and valiant Patriots of their day.
