Four Major Teachers Unions to Strike Next Friday

All four of Ontario's major teachers unions will strike on the same day.

The Elementary Teachers' Federation of Ontario (ETFO), the Ontario Secondary School Teachers' Federation (OSSTF), the Ontario English Catholic Teachers Association (OECTA), and Association des Enseignantes et des Enseignants Franco-Ontariens (AEFO) will strike on Friday February 21st.

That's if they don't reach deals with the province beforehand.

Almost 200,000 teachers and education workers will walk off the job for one day.

This will affect nearly 5,000 schools across 72 school boards; including the District School Board of Niagara and the Niagara Catholic District School Board.

All four of unions have not been on strike at the same time since 1997.
