Teacher Strike Vote Looms

Over 1,000 local full and part-time elementary school teachers are scheduled to meet November 17 to discuss provincial collective bargaining issues.

This comes in advance of a strike vote the final week of November.

ETFO Local President Ron Rivait says financial issues are being discussed provincially but says he doesn’t have any specific details.

Rivait says it’s up to the local members on whether to approve what’s negotiated at the provincial table.

If the union votes against it, strike action would not occur for months down the road.
