Vote Conservative – Crush the public service unions – Ontario teachers gearing up for showdown with province

The Ontario high-school teachers’ union is planning to discuss a bargaining strategy and consider a new levy to bolster its strike fund, a clear signal educators are preparing for a lengthy battle with the province regardless of which party is in power after June 12.

Parents and students who vividly remember last year’s teacher walkouts and the loss of extracurricular programs may find it alarming that more than 550 Ontario Secondary School Teachers’ Federation members will hold a special meeting next Saturday.
