A number of eastern Ontario schools are closed today as strikes by education workers continue.
Members of the Ontario English Catholic Teachers’ Association (OECTA) are taking part in a one-day strike, meaning all eastern Ontario English Catholics schools are closed.
Teachers and education workers represented by the Ontario Secondary School Teachers’ Federation (OSSTF) are striking in select school boards, including the Hastings and Prince Edward District School Board and some in Trenton.
Finally, members of the Elementary Teachers’ Federation of Ontario (ETFO) in Renfrew County are striking.
