Ontario’s public elementary teachers will strike two days a week if their union and the provincial government have not reached a deal by Friday. A memo sent Monday to members of the Elementary Teachers’ Federation of Ontario detailed the significant step-up in job action, which will take effect next week, shutting down schools across the province and leaving parents rushing to find daycare. “ETFO locals will continue in a full withdrawal of services strike that will require members to engage in a one-day rotating strike and a one-day full provincial strike each week” if no deal is reached by Jan. 31, the memo said.
