On Thursday Nov. 28, 2019, the Ontario Secondary School Teachers’ Federation (OSSTF) representing teachers and education workers announced that on Wednesday Dec. 4, all of its members across the province of Ontario will participate in a one day “full withdrawal of services” unless a tentative agreement is reached at the provincial bargaining table.

OSSTF members will return to their school/work site and will resume normal activities on Thursday Dec. 5.

In the UGDSB, OSSTF represents 5 distinct groups of employees: Secondary Teachers, Secondary Occasional Teachers, Educational Assistants, Early Childhood Educators, Office Clerical staff and Professional Student Support personnel. These staff members work in elementary and secondary schools in the UGDSB.
