On a special edition of Ontario Today on Tuesday, we'll be talking about the Ontario teachers' job action and how it is affecting your family. And we want to know: How would you like to see this dispute resolved?
On Tuesday, the largest of the teachers’ union’s one-day walkouts will affect schools in Toronto, Durham Region, Peel Region, Greater Essex County, Lambton-Kent, Grand Erie, Near North and Waterloo Region.
Hundreds of thousands of students will have to stay home. The Toronto District School Board alone employs more than 10,000 teachers.
Teachers have already walked off the job in one-day actions in Northern Ontario, the Ottawa area, Niagara region, York Region and Hamilton, among other parts of the province.
The walkouts will move to the Bluewater (Grey-Bruce), Algoma and Halton school boards Wednesday and on Thursday to schools in the Upper Canada (Southeastern Ontario), Limestone (Kingston area), Thames Valley (London area) and Superior-Greenstone (Northwestern Ontario) school boards.
Because different parts of the province present different issues in the teachers’ labour dispute, we have six different Live Chats you can join while listening to the program steaming live online.
Pick the Live Chat that is most relevant to your interests.
The best questions and comments from all the chats will be read on air during the broadcast.
