One Day Strike coming at public high schools

Saying they’ve been driven to it, high school teachers across Ontario will walk off the job for one day on Wednesday.

The one-day strike will only affect public high schools.

The union representing the teachers says the province is refusing to listen to parents, unwilling to listen to students and the erosion of education is happening now and they can’t wait any longer.

Meanwhile the province says they have made concessions to the union but pay continues to be the sticking point in contract negotiations.

If a tentative agreement is reached before Wednesday a strike will not happen.
