Niagara Schools to Close if Education Workers Strike

October 4, 2019

By: Marcie Culbert

The District School Board of Niagara and the Niagara Catholic District School Board will be closing their all of their schools, if Ontario's education workers go on strike.

A handful of other school boards have also announced potential closures, leaving thousands of students impacted across Ontario.

Office employees and support staff could walk off the job on Monday, if a deal isn't reached between the  Canadian Union of Public Employees and the province. 

Representatives from both sides will meet at the bargaining table this afternoon.
