The members of Ontario’s four teacher unions will shut down the province’s publicly-funded elementary and high schools next week unless they reach a deal with government negotiators. Standing together outside a Toronto hotel ballroom where Education Minister Stephen Lecce spoke Wednesday, the four union presidents described their effort as historic joint job action brought on by the intransigence of the Doug Ford government. The massive one-day strike is scheduled for Feb. 21 and will impact elementary and secondary students in the public, Catholic and French-language boards.
