Letter from affiliates re the safe re-opening of schools

On August 13, 2020, Ontario’s four major education unions, including ETFO, OECTA, AEFO and OSSTF sent a letter (PDF|Word) requesting an immediate meeting with the Ministry of Labour and Ministry of Education representatives. 

The unions contend that the government’s “Guide to Re-Opening Ontario Schools” does not meet requirements set out in the Ontario Health And Safety Act. The flawed plan does not take “every reasonable precaution” to protect teachers and education workers required under Section 25(2)(h) of the Act.
