Public high schools in Durham will be closed Friday (Feb. 28) for more job action by members of the Ontario Secondary School Teachers’ Federation.
The union has announced that teachers and education workers with the Durham District School Board will participate in a one-day, full withdrawal of services as part of a series of rotating strikes across the province.
“All DDSB secondary schools and programs that will close on February 28 will re-open for regularly scheduled classes on March 2, and will continue with scheduled classes thereafter, pending further notice. DDSB’s Job Action Committee will continue to provide updated communication to families related to this escalation in job action,” reads a statement on the Durham District School Board website.
“We value our staff and their work with students. We also recognize their right to the collective bargaining process, which includes the option of full withdrawal of services.”
