The Provincial Council of the Ontario Secondary School Teachers’ Federation have voted to recommend to members to suspend their political action related to extra-curricular and voluntary activities.

“We expect that this sign of good will from our members will prompt the government to have genuine discussions that can lead to a fair resolution to this current impasse,” said Ken Coran, President of OSSTF/FEESO.

“We still maintain that voluntary activities are just that: voluntary,” continued Coran. “We encourage members to review recent information and decide if they are willing to return to participating in the activities we know they feel so passionately about.”

“I’m happy to hear the results of today’s vote by OSSTF members, and I’m so glad that teachers, support staff and students across the province will once again enjoy the extracurricular activities and programs that mean so much to them,” remarked Premier Kathleen Wynne

“I’ve been clear that this issue needs to be addressed within Ontario’s existing fiscal framework. But I am confident that our government’s commitment to fairness, consistency and respect in our conversations with OSSTF and all our partners will continue to result in real work being done for the people of Ontario,” concluded Wynne.
