Ontario’s french-language teachers say they will strike on Feb. 27 as contract negotiations continue to fall through.

On Sunday the Association des enseignantes et des enseignants franco-ontariens (AEFO) announced on Twitter that they will resume job action on Thursday.

Members of AEFO picketed last Friday along with the other three major teachers’ unions. Last week’s job action was the first time all four unions have been on picket lines on the same day since 1997. The unions have said they are protesting the provincial government’s cuts to publicly funded education.
