TORONTO — Ontario students returned to class Tuesday (and today in Sudbury) amid uncertainty surrounding labour talks between the government and unions representing public school teachers and educational workers.

Education sector contracts expired Saturday and while bargaining is still in its early stages warning signs have already begun to emerge from the talks.

The union representing 55,000 education workers — custodians, clerical workers and educational assistants — asked its members Tuesday for a strike mandate after conducting some bargaining with the government and the province's school boards this summer.
