All elementary and secondary schools at the Near North Board will be closed tomorrow (Wednesday, Dec 11th) if OSSTF members go ahead with their planned one-day strike.

The strike action is planned for nine school boards in Ontario, including the Near North Board.

The English public secondary school teachers and education workers also hit the picket lines last Wednesday.

Meantime, the Elementary Teachers Federation of Ontario is ramping up their work-to-rule campaign.

Officials say the English public elementary teachers will not plan any new field trips or distribute letters or memos from schools and boards.
