The Elementary Teachers’ Federation of Ontario (ETFO) has provided notice of strike action in all Ontario elementary schools beginning Monday, May 11, 2015. Based on the information available at this time, it is believed that ETFO will be implementing a partial withdrawal of service. According to media reports elementary teachers will not participate in EQAO testing, will perform limited duties in relation to report card preparation, and will not participate in professional development. This job action applies to all elementary schools in the Ottawa-Carleton District School Board, as well as other elementary schools in Ontario.
Based on the current information received, parents can expect elementary schools (kindergarten to Gr. 8) to be open and all classes running as usual. All extended day programs will operate as regularly scheduled. The school district will provide more information about the specific services that the union is withdrawing in the coming days.
