Ontario teachers' unions holding targeted, rolling walkouts instead of a general strike makes it difficult for the Ford government to justify back-to-work legislation, according to one legal expert.

Gilles LeVasseur, a law and business professor at the University of Ottawa, said even if the province wanted to force teachers back to work when MPPs return to Queen's Park next week, it likely wouldn't be able to because of the limited job actions the unions have taken so far.

"There has to be either security issues, a public health [threat] or an imminent danger to society in order to have that legislation," said LeVasseur.
