All of Ontario’s elementary school teachers will be on strike today. The Elementary Teachers’ Federation of Ontario is holding a provincewide walkout for all of its thousands of members. It’s the latest in a series of job actions meant to turn up the pressure on the Ontario government during tense contract negotiations. The ETFO is also holding a series of rotating, one-day strikes at boards across the province. Another provincewide strike is schedule for next Tuesday, unless a deal is reached. All of Ontario’s major teacher unions are involved in some kind of job action as they push the government for a pay-increase and to roll back measures such as class-size increases and mandatory online courses.
