Reaction was swift from four of the province's education unions — all of them currently in negotiations with the government for new collective agreements.

In a written statement released not long after the vote, the Elementary Teachers' Federation of Ontario (ETFO), the Association des enseignantes et enseignants franco-ontariens (AEFO), the Ontario English Catholic Teachers' Association (OECTA), and the Ontario Secondary School Teachers' Federation condemned the legislation and announced they're preparing a court challenge to the bill.

"The Protecting a Sustainable Public Sector for Future Generations Act tramples on collective bargaining rights and targets public sector workers with unfair austerity measures for the next three years," the statement reads.
