Elementary Teachers Federation of Ontario (ETFO)

November 21, 2019

The Elementary Teachers' Federation of Ontario (ETFO) has announced that it would begin a legal job action across Ontario on Tuesday, November 26th in support of its collective bargaining position.
No other union or federation has indicated a job action at this time.
​Throughout the course of the ETFO job action schools will remain open, with health and safety of students being the priority. Childcare centres and before & after-school programs will also remain open.
The Board will do everything possible to minimize the impact of this job action, each instructional day,on students and their families. We are closely monitoring negotiations and hope all parties can reach fair and mutually acceptable agreements as quickly as possible. 
We remain committed to providing our families and communities with the latest information in a timely manner.​
