January 11, 2020Proposed changes by the Doug Ford government are having a profoundly negative impact on Ontario’s world-class education system. They are at the heart of the labour dispute between the government and Ontario’s education workers and teachers.
Over the next few years, thousands of teaching positions and education workers’ jobs will be eliminated. The impact of these losses is already being felt:
Ontario’s education workers and teachers are fighting these cuts to ensure our system meets the needs of our students.
In response, Doug Ford’s government is not telling you the truth and has launched a campaign of misinformation. They are deliberately attempting to cloud the issues with false and exaggerated claims. They have also passed legislation that directly challenges the principle of free and open negotiations.
It’s time the Ford government recognizes that education is an investment in the next generation and in our economy. Short-sighted cuts will do long-term damage that will take years to correct.
Education workers and teachers are fighting to maintain one of the best education systems in the world, providing future generations with the skills and ability to take on the challenges of tomorrow.
Join us in this fight.
