Labour Update: ETFO One-Day Strike

Wednesday, January 15, 2020
Categories: News Releases

Dear Elementary Parents/Guardians,

This is a reminder that members of the Elementary Teachers’ Federation of Ontario (ETFO) are scheduled to take part in a one-day walkout (full withdrawal of services) at a number of school boards, including the TDSB, tomorrow (Monday, January 20).

As a result, all TDSB elementary schools (JK to 8) will be closed to students on Monday, January 20 as there would not be sufficient supervision to ensure their safety. Parents/guardians are required to make alternate childcare arrangements for their children. TDSB elementary schools will re-open to students on Tuesday, January 21.

All International Languages Elementary and African Heritage classes taking place tomorrow are also cancelled. All adult non-credit programs, such as Adult ESL and Learn4Life, will continue to run.

Childcare centres located in elementary schools are permitted to stay open. TDSB Extended Day Programs will also be open to currently enrolled students for a full day of programs. EarlyON Child and Family Centres located within TDSB elementary schools will be closed.

ETFO has indicated that the walkout will take place unless progress is made in negotiations. Should there be any significant updates or changes to tomorrow’s planned walkout, we will communicate directly with parents/guardians as quickly as possible. As always, for ongoing labour updates, please visit the TDSB website and follow @tdsb on Twitter.

Our Mission
To enable all students to reach high levels of achievement and well-being
and to acquire the knowledge, skills
and values they need to become responsible, contributing members of
a democratic and sustainable society.
