All Secondary Schools Closed to Students on December 4 Due to One-Day Strike by OSSTF

On November 28, the Ontario Secondary School Teachers’ Federation (OSSTF) announced that escalated job action in the form of a one-day, Province-wide strike will take place on Wednesday, December 4.

As a result, all Grand Erie secondary schools will be closed to students on December 4. All secondary schools will re-open to students on December 5 following the one-day strike by OSSTF.

“Grand Erie remains hopeful that an agreement with OSSTF can be reached soon,” said Greg Anderson, Chair of the Grand Erie District School Board. “In the meantime, we want to thank our students and families for their continued patience and understanding during these uncertain times.”
