March 5, 2020
Today, Stephen Lecce, Minister of Education, issued the following statement in response to continued strike action by OSSTF, OECTA, and AEFO:
“I have offered all teachers’ union federations a fair and reasonable plan, which should pave the way to reaching a good deal that keeps students in class.
The government has consistently made reasonable moves – effectively freezing class room sizes, a parental opt out for online learning, a commitment to full-day kindergarten, and one hundred per cent investment in special education.
The time for a deal is now, I urge the unions to stop this disruptive escalation and return to the table to get a deal that is fair for parents, students, and educators.”
