OECTA moves closer to strike


TORONTO—The union representing the province's English Catholic teachers says it is moving closer to a legal strike position.

The Ontario English Catholic Teachers' Association (OECTA) requested a “no-board” report on Friday, which can take a few days to be issued.

Once that happens, teachers would be in a legal strike position 17 days later.

The union says the government will not reverse cuts it has made which impact the classroom and it sees little prospect for further progress in talks.

Earlier this month, the teachers voted 97 percent in favour of a strike.
