UCDSB High Schools Planning Wednesday Strike
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.
