Rotating teacher strikes continue: List of affected school boards – CTV News

January 17, 2020

KITCHENER — The union representing Ontario’s public elementary teachers says rotating strikes will continue next week.

ETFO says three school boards will be participating in one-day job action on Wednesday if the government doesn’t address some critical issues by the end of the day Friday.

“We have no choice but to commence rotating strikes starting this Monday as our only means of forcing the government to get serious about negotiations and the future of public education,” says ETFO President Sam Hammond in a press release. “It is crystal clear that the Ford government is only interested in cuts to public education. There has been little discussion on ETFO’s proposals for: smaller classes where students get the help they need; more resources for students with special needs; protection of our world-renowned Kindergarten program; and fair compensation for educators.”
