OECTA Will Suspend Rotating Strikes Next Week

OXFORD COUNTY - The Ontario English Catholic Teachers Association announced today they are going to suspend rotating strikes next week as they head back to the bargaining table with the Province on Monday. 

Here is the statement they posted on their web site today. 

"Today’s historic strike was an incredible display of the passion and dedication of teachers and education workers across Ontario.

At the same time, we have always said that our goal is to negotiate a deal at the bargaining table, and it is clear that our efforts are being effective in forcing the government to work with our Association toward a fair agreement. The mediator has called the parties back to the table on Monday, February 24, and we have been assured that the discussions will continue to be meaningful. As a result, OECTA will be suspending the rotating strikes planned for next week.

Catholic teachers have demonstrated that we will do what is necessary to stand up against this government’s cuts to publicly funded education. Should negotiations cease being productive, further strike action will be announced.”

Liz Stuart, President of the Ontario English Catholic Teachers’ Association
