Teachers federation backs off strike action

A strike action planned by the union representing local public high school teachers has been suspended while the union attempts to resolve its issues with government.
On Wednesday Nov. 7, local high school teachers were expected to start refusing to do many of their normal duties, including communicating with parents outside of school hours, and filling in for vice-principals and principals who are away from school. But on Tuesday, the Ontario Secondary Teachers’ Federation announced that it has been communicating with government representatives “in the interest of going forward and seeking resolutions to the challenges facing the education sector,” a news release said.
“A commitment has been made to meet on November 7 to proceed in an expeditious and efficient manner and fast track to potential resolutions,” it said.
With that commitment, the federation – which represents teachers, educational assistants, early childhood educators, social workers, and many others in education – is delaying its action until 11:59 p.m. on Sunday Nov. 11, it said.
