Statement by Education Minister – “Stephen Lecce”
Lecce released a statement Saturday saying “students across the province are being hurt by union-led escalation.”
“Parents and students have been this type of job action every few years for decades,” he said. “That is why we are calling on the teachers’ unions to cease escalation, stop playing with students’ futures, and focus on reaching a deal that keeps our students in the classroom where they belong.”
Here is a rundown of the labour landscape in Ottawa’s schools, and what job actions to expect if there is no progress in contract negotiations.
Union leaders continue to escalate their job action to the detriment of students and parents. This escalated withdrawal of service includes extracurricular activities, EQAO testing support, and report cards.
