Hanselman, Rasmussen and Watson have characterised closed, toroidal, non-L-space 3-manifolds expressed as the union of manifolds with incompressible torus boundaries in terms of the gluing map. We discuss analogous results on the left-orderabilty of their fundamental groups suggested by the L-space conjecture together with some applications.

Joint work with Cameron McA. Gordon (University of Texas at Austin) and Ying Hu (University of Nebraska at Omaha).
