Extra-Curriculars Not Coming Back Yet: OSSTF
While the head of the union representing the province's public high school teachers says they will be abiding by the ruling of the Ontario Labour Relations Board (OLRB), extra curricular action is staying as-is.
Ontario Secondary School Teachers' Federation (OSSTF) president Ken Coran says they now have very limited ways to show their displeasure with Bill 115 but underlines union brass isn't handcuffing its teachers.
Coran underlines after meeting with 140 local union heads this week, it became clear teachers themselves wanted to continue to pull back from volunteering to help with after-school and lunch time programs like coaching sports teams and heading drama clubs.
As for if the OSSTF plans on trying to stage any more protests, Coran stresses the OLRB was clear that they cannot legally organize anything.
Coran says he hopes to move forward with more discussions with the ministry of education. He says if that's not possible, it may have to wait until the new Liberal leader and premier is chosen.
