The Greater Essex County District School Board is warning of a possible teachers’ strike this Wednesday.

Public Relations Officer Scott Scantlebury says the Ontario Secondary Schools Teachers’ Federation has scheduled a full withdrawal of services by its members on Wednesday, December 4th if a new collective agreement has not been reached by 9:00pm on Tuesday, December 3rd.

In the event of a strike on Wednesday, all schools including elementary, secondary and continuing education will be closed, all student transportation for GECDSB students will be cancelled, the 5 GECDSB Early On centres (Begley, West Gate, Roseville, Queen Elizabeth & John Campbell public schools) will be closed, and co-op students will not report to their placements.

School-based daycare centres will however remain open.

Scantlebury says GECDSB schools, student transportation and programs are scheduled to resume operation on Thursday, December 5th.
