Schools in several boards across the province, including Durham District School Board, will be closed on Wednesday, as the union representing high school teachers stages another one-day strike.
It’s the latest in the Ontario Secondary School Teachers’ Federation’s (OSSTF) series of rotating strikes during a contentious round of bargaining with the province.
High schools will be closed in Durham District School Board, Hamilton-Wentworth District School Board, and Wellington Catholic District School Board, among others. (Full list below)
Union president Harvey Bischof says he’ll call off the job action if the government takes class size increases off the table.
“It’s time for the Ford government to come to the table with meaningful responses to our proposals so that we can work toward a deal that protects the quality of education in Ontario,” Bischof said in a statement.
