by | Jan 13, 2020 | Local News | 0 comments

Classes will be cancelled for tens of thousands of students in the Lake 88 listening area, Ottawa and across eastern Ontario on Wednesday, if high school teachers hold a one-day strike.

The Ontario Secondary School Teachers Federation has announced its members will hold another one-day strike in several boards across Ontario on Wednesday, including Upper Canada District School Board and the Ottawa Carleton District School Board. 

Locally, The UCDSB says classes, planned activities, co-op placements and extra curriculars will be cancelled for students in Grades 9 to 12.

Regular classes for students in Kindergarten to Grade 8 will proceed as usual, even if students in Grade 7 and Grade 8 are in a secondary school.

Last week, elementary teachers announced work to rule would begin today and rotating strikes will begin a week from today.

The union representing Catholic teachers also began a work-to-rule campaign last week.
