'Only so long my patience can last': Ford takes aim at teachers' union bosses amid strikes - 2020-01-24
Ontario Premier Doug Ford says he is not currently considering back-to-work legislation amid ongoing strife with education unions, but added there is "only so long" his patience can last with union bosses.
Speaking in Mississauga, Ford said his government will not budge on a 1 per cent public sector wage cap that is set to remain in place for the next three years. He said that Education Minister Stephen Lecce has made a number of concessions during negotiations with teachers' unions and again criticized union leadership.
"Hopefully they are going to come to their senses — the unions, not the teachers," he said. "So stay tuned."
