Toronto, ON – As a result of the Ford government’s failure to contain the spread of COVID-19 in Ontario, we are at the height of a pandemic that has surged out of control. This has resulted in yet another last-minute decision, one that extends remote learning in many areas of the province, and again leaves families and educators scrambling to plan.
Toronto, ON – The Elementary Teachers’ Federation of Ontario (ETFO) is filing a complaint today with the Ontario Labour Relations Board (OLRB) seeking a ruling against the government’s revocation of Regulation 274.
“We believe that the government’s unilateral move to revoke Regulation 274 constitutes an unfair labour practice,” said ETFO President Sam Hammond.
ETFO is looking for an occasional teacher to contribute bi-weekly to its Heart and Art Blog until June 2021.
The Heart and Art of Teaching and Learning web resource is designed to support new teachers as they progress through the school year. Blog posts touch on relevant issues in teaching and learning. For further information view this flyer.
