The Elementary Teachers' Federation of Ontario announced through a news release that some of their members will be engaged in a one-day strike on Monday, Jan. 20, 2020, unless progress is made at the central bargaining table. This one-day strike will NOT affect the Peel District School Board, though other school boards are impacted.
Monday, Jan. 20, 2020 remains a Professional Activity (PA) Day, so elementary (kindergarten to grade 8) students should not come to school. It is a regular school day for secondary students (grade 9 to 12).
ETFO announced that their members in these boards will be on a one-day strike on Jan. 20:
- Toronto District School Board
- York Region District School Board
- Ottawa-Carleton District School Board
Again, Peel District School Board ETFO members will not be engaged in a full withdrawal of service on Jan. 20. ETFO members will, however, be continuing their current job action, including information pickets.
Thank you for your ongoing understanding during these challenging times.
