Elementary public school teachers, occasional teachers and education professionals will be steeping up job action next week.

Starting Wednesday, they will begin Phase 3 strike action and all members will withdraw from all voluntary extracurricular activities.

“The Liberal government and OPSBA have ignored all attempts by ETFO to get them to return to the central bargaining table, including an offer to refer one issue to binding arbitration. If OPSBA and the government want a deal, why are they not responding to our efforts to resume bargaining? Why are they not back at the bargaining table with us?” said ETFO President Sam Hammond. “Our members do not undertake this escalation of strike action lightly, but they understand that reaching a fair and reasonable agreement will not happen unless OPSBA and the government are present at the bargaining table.”

Remembrance Day activities and breakfast programs will not be affected by these sanctions.
