Starting Wednesday, elementary teachers in Ontario will not be supervising any extra-curricular activities as part of their ongoing work-to-rule campaign.
The Elementary Teachers’ Federation of Ontario made the announcement last week, saying job action would be ramped up amid negotiations with the province.
ETFO represents around 78,000 elementary public school teachers. Support staff represented by the Canadian Union of Public Employees and the Ontario Secondary School Teachers’ Federation, including office staff, education assistants, and custodians, are also part of the job action.
The move means that school programs will be halted, and that K-Grade 8 progress reports will not be distributed.
ETFO teachers have been without a contract since August 2014.
