OSSTF: Another One-Day Walkout Announced for Wednesday, December 11

Friday, December 06, 2019
Categories: News Releases

Dear Secondary Parents/Guardians,

The Ontario Secondary School Teachers’ Federation (OSSTF) has announced today, should a tentative agreement not be reached, its members (teachers and education workers) will conduct another one-day walkout (full withdrawal of services) at a number of school boards, including the Toronto District School Board, on Wednesday, December 11, 2019. They will return to work on Thursday, December 12, 2019.

Should the walkout take place, the TDSB would, once again, have no other option but to close all secondary schools (Grade 9 to 12) to students, including Adult Day Schools and Night Schools offering secondary credits, as there would not be sufficient supervision to ensure their safety. All classes, including secondary e-Learning classes, and any out-of-school activities (e.g. field trips, sports, etc.) would be cancelled. As a result, parents/guardians should make alternate arrangements for their children if required. General Interest and Adult ESL courses would not be impacted.

OSSTF is in negotiations with the Government of Ontario and the Ontario Public School Boards' Association (OPSBA) to achieve new collective agreements for secondary teachers and education workers (including Child and Youth Workers, Psychologists, Social Workers and Speech-Language Pathologists).

Should there be any significant updates, we will communicate directly with parents/guardians. As always, for ongoing labour updates, please visit the TDSB website and follow @tdsb on Twitter.

Sincerely,

Chair and Director Signatures
