What you need to know about the labour dispute CTVNews. Which teachers are on strike? Public secondary school teachers from the Peel District, Rainbow District and Durham District are on strike, meaning classes are closed for students of these school boards.
Other school boards that could soon see secondary school teachers hit the picket lines include: Waterloo, Ottawa, Thunder Bay and Halton. What about the elementary schools?
The Elementary Teachers Federation of Ontario said the job action will begin with the withdrawal of administrative services, but schools will not be closed. The union has to give at least five days notice, meaning Wednesday is the soonest the withdrawal can begin.
CTV Toronto obtained a confidential release outlining the job action. Starting May 11 teachers will not do the following: Conduct EQAO testing related activities, prepare report card comments, attend staff meeting or grade meetings.
Early childhood educators and education support workers will not be participating in the job action, ETFO said.
What are the main issues behind the labour dispute? There are two levels of bargaining for Ontario teachers: Main monetary issues -- including wages, benefits and paid leave -- are negotiated at the central level, while working conditions specific to each school board are dealt with at the local level.
At the local level of bargaining, issues vary according to each board and often relate to administrative and human resources issues. These demands are related to increasing class sizes, directing teachers on their prep time, and hiring practices.
Is there a resolution in sight? At the local level some school boards have accused the union of using the strike as a way of putting pressure on the province. Labour relations expert Brendan Sweeney said the province may step in and enact back-to-work legislation if the strike carries on too long and puts the rest of the school year at risk.
