If you're running a college and you know that the government will legislate the teachers back to work, then what motivation would you have to negotiate contracts in good faith? The employees are forced to work for you whether they agree with their employment contract or not. This is always a shitty move by the government, but it's particularly shitty when it's for non-essential services.
There can never be good faith bargaining in the public sector because the unions always make demands that require governments to increase taxes or cut other programs. If unions would accept that the only money on the table is money that has already been allocated in the budget then there would be no need for back to work legislation.
