Premier Kathleen Wynne is expected to meet with members of the union representing Ontario elementary school teachers Friday morning after the group said they will ramp up job action next week if no new collective agreement is reached.
Wynne and Education Minister Liz Sandals said Thursday they will meet with representatives from the Elementary Teachers Federation of Ontario at Queens Park in order to discuss ongoing labour negotiations. The two are also expected to meet with the union representing education support workers.
ETFO said Thursday that if no new collective agreement is reached by Oct. 28, teachers will no longer take part in voluntary extra-curricular activities, such as coaching sports teams or supervising student clubs.
The government has also proposed a series of new bargaining dates.
