Ontario Teachers Unions on Strike – 2020-02-21

All Ontario education unions will strike on Friday, February 21. This is the first time since the political protest of 1997 that teachers and education workers from Ontario’s main education affiliates will all be out of their classrooms on the same day.Below please find an online solidarity letter. The letter has so far received close to a thousand signatures from Ontario academics and post-secondary educators in support of the teachers and education workers. Please consider signing the online letter to help amplify the message and demonstrate national support for education funding.
