The Ontario Secondary School Teacher’s Federation (OSSTF) informed the Halton District School Board on Tuesday, December 3, 2019 that a one-day walkout will take place on Wednesday December 4th.  As a result of this notification all Halton District School Board High Schools and Secondary Schools will be closed, but Elementary Schools will be open.

The OSSTF has decided to take this position due to the lack of progress between the unions,  the Ontario Conservative Government and the Ontario Public School Board’s Association (OPSBA).

Schools should be open on Thursday, December 5, 2019.

OSSTF represents: 

  • Permanent and occasional (supply) teachers in secondary schools
  • Office, clerical and technical employees (OCTU) in both elementary and secondary schools 
  • Professional Student Services Personnel (PSSP) which includes Psychologists, Social Workers, Child and Youth Counsellors, Speech-Language Pathologists and Applied Behaviour Analysis (ABA) Facilitators in both elementary and secondary schools

Programs affected by One-Day Walkout

  • Athletics, Extracurriculars, Field Trips and Co-op Placements: All secondary school athletics, extracurricular activities and field trips scheduled for Wednesday, Dec. 4 are cancelled. Attempts will be made to reschedule these events at a later date. Co-op placements for secondary students are cancelled for the day.
  • Adult Day and Night School Classes: All Adult Day School Credit classes and Night School Credit, including all in-class and co-op classes, are cancelled for Wednesday, Dec. 4.
  • Community Use Rentals: School rentals are not impacted.

As more information is available the Halton District School Board will continue to utilize its social media platforms and School/Messenger to keep community informed in a timely manner.
