All four major teachers’ unions in Ontario said Wednesday they will stage a one-day walkout on Feb. 21 in a bid to ramp up pressure on Premier Doug Ford’s government during tense contract negotiations. The job action will close over 5,000 public elementary and secondary schools across Ontario for one day, leaving over two million students out of class. Nearly 200,000 teachers represented by the four unions — the Elementary Teachers’ Federation of Ontario, the Ontario English Catholic Teachers’ Association and the Ontario Secondary School Teachers’ Federation and Association des enseignantes et des enseignants franco-ontariens — will take part in the one-day strike.
