Ontario premier digs in against teachers' unions, says strikes are 'about compensation' - 2020-01-17
All of Ontario's major teachers' unions are now in various states of escalated job action, ranging from rotating strikes to work-to-rule campaigns. They are all in legal strike positions.
Unions say the government isn't negotiating in good faith, nor has it done enough to address their concerns about a wide range of issues including class size, mandatory e-learning and compensation.
Unions have also launched legal challenges over the Ford government's plan to cap public sector wage increases to one per cent annually, below the rate of inflation.
