3rd day of talks between Ontario’s public elementary teachers and government

THE CANADIAN PRESS | posted Friday, Jan 31st, 2020

Contract talks are to resume Friday for a third day in a row between Ontario’s public elementary teachers and the government.

Friday is the deadline the Elementary Teachers’ Federation of Ontario (ETFO) has given to reach a deal with the government or the union will ramp up strikes next week.

The two sides returned to the bargaining table Wednesday for the first time since Dec. 19.

The elementary teachers have been holding one-day, rotating strikes for two weeks, but they are planning to walk out at each board twice a week starting next week if no deal is reached.

ETFO rotating strikes today are to hit the Peel and Hamilton-Wentworth school boards.

Meanwhile, in another crack in the teacher-government stalemate, the province’s English Catholic teachers say they will return to the bargaining table after talks broke off earlier this month.
