Labour Updates

Jan. 20, 2020

Should the Tues. Jan. 21 OSSTF walkout take place, the TDSB would, once again, have no other option but to close all secondary schools (9 to 12)  as there would not be sufficient supervision to ensure their safety. All classes, including secondary e-Learning classes, and any out-of-school activities (e.g. field trips, sports, etc.) on that day would be cancelled

(All TDSB elementary schools (JK to 8) are closed to students on Monday, January 20 as a result of a one-day walkout by the Elementary Teachers’ Federation of Ontario. Parents/guardians are required to make alternate childcare arrangements for their children. Elementary schools will re-open to students on Tuesday, January 21.)

Happy New Year to all members of the George Harvey Family. We look forward to a bright and successful 2020!

Update- December 13, 2019:

OSSTF has announced that a third one-day walkout is scheduled to take place at some Ontario school boards on Wednesday, December 18 if an agreement is not reached. It is important to note that this walkout does not impact the TDSB. Wednesday December 18 is a regular school day- no late start.

Nov. 29 Update

Dear Secondary Parents/Guardians,

The Ontario Secondary School Teachers’ Federation (OSSTF) has announced today that, should a tentative agreement not be reached, its members (teachers and education workers) will conduct a one-day walkout (full withdrawal of services) on Wednesday, December 4, 2019 and return to work on Thursday, December 5, 2019.

Should there be a walkout on December 4, the TDSB would have no other option but to close all secondary schools to students as there would not be sufficient supervision to ensure their safety. This would include all TDSB secondary schools, ...and, any out-of-school activities (e.g. field trips, sports, etc.) would also be cancelled on that day. As a result, parents/guardians should make alternate arrangements for their children if required.

OSSTF is in negotiations with the Government of Ontario and the Ontario Public School Boards' Association (OPSBA) to achieve new collective agreements for secondary teachers and education workers (including Child and Youth Workers, Social Workers and Speech-Language Pathologists).

As always, for ongoing labour updates, please visit the TDSB website and follow @tdsb on Twitter.
