It was announced today that OECTA will move to a series of rotating strikes across the province next week, if a provincial settlement is not reached by then.
This means that OECTA will potentially hold a one-day, full withdrawal of services in all HCDSB schools on Tuesday, February 25, 2020, unless a strike is averted.
OECTA represents all of our HCDSB elementary and secondary school teachers. A full withdrawal of services would mean that no instruction would take place in any of our classrooms, posing significant student supervision challenges that would threaten the safety of our elementary and secondary students.
In light of these safety concerns, all HCDSB schools will be closed to students on Tuesday, February 25, 2020, if a provincial settlement is not reached.
NOTE: The potential walkout on February 25th is in addition to the one-day walkout that is scheduled to take place across the province on Friday, February 21, 2020.
