Catholic Teachers Announce One-Day Strike

Ontario | by Bayshore News Staff  
It would take place next Tuesday, January 21.

Teachers in Ontario's English Catholic system have announced a one-day strike next Tuesday, January 21.

The president of the Ontario English Catholic Teachers' Association says the government appears to only "do the right thing" when under pressure, so teachers have little choice but to take the next step in the bargaining process.

Catholic teachers began a work-to-rule campaign yesterday that includes not participating in standardized testing, preparing report card comments, or participating in Ministry of Education initiatives.

Meanwhile, public elementary teachers also stepped up their work-to-rule campaign yesterday and are planning for rotating strikes starting next week.

Public high school teachers are set to stage the latest in a series of one-day, rotating strikes tomorrow, but none in Simcoe County nor Muskoka. 

The union representing Ontario’s French-language teachers has announced a Work-to-Rule campaign will start this Thursday, January 16, 2020.

That means all of the major teachers’ unions in the province are now engaged in job actions.
