Ottawa, Nov 21 (Canadian-Media): It was announced today by Ontario Secondary School Teachers’ Federation (OSSTF) president Harvey Bischof that OSSTF will start a province-wide job action next week including "information pickets" and withdrawal of some administrative services, media reports said.
Bischof said that as long as the job action is ongoing, services like teachers' preparing EQAO or testing, go to unpaid staff meetings outside the school day, or provide comments on high school report cards will not be carried out.
Bischof added that submission of Ministry of Education data reports by Union members or their participation in professional activities based on ministry or school board initiatives, will not be conducted.
"I can't give you a timeline," Bischof said. "We are responsive to whether or not bargaining is progressing."
