Teacher contract talks continue as deadline for one-day strike looms

Ontario’s education minister, Stephen Lecce says the government wants to reach a deal with high school teachers to avoid Wednesday’s one-day strike.

Lecce says the government remains at the bargaining table with public high school teachers to reach a contract agreement. The union’s deadline for a deal is midnight tonight.

The Ontario Secondary School Teacher’s federation is already conducting a work-to-rule campaign and had been without a contract since the end of August.
