Elementary Teachers Won't Return to Volunteer Duties

The Elementary Teachers' Federation of Ontario says it will continue its political protest and its members won't resume supervising extracurricular activities. The ETFO says it won't ask its members to resume the voluntary activities. They say it will take "real actions'' for the government to regain the confidence of teachers. Teachers remain upset, after the Liberals used controversial legislation to impose contracts on them in January, which cut benefits and froze the wages of most instructors. The union representing public high school teachers urged their members last week to return to extracurriculars like sport teams and clubs. But there's been no movement towards restarting those activities.
