The Elementary Teachers’ Federation of Ontario says it’s preparing for a work-to-rule strike beginning on Nov. 26.
The federation said 98 per cent of members voted for the job action, which they say targets administrative tasks and won’t affect children.
President Sam Hammond said the federation hopes to put pressure on the Ontario government to better support special needs students, kindergarten programs and reducing violence in schools.
The ETFO represents 83,000 elementary public school teachers, occasional teachers and education professionals across the province.
More to come.
