KITCHENER — The Ontario Secondary School Teachers‘ Federation set to have its members go on strike for a day on Wednesday, affecting dozens of school boards around the province.

Any of the following staff members could be included in the strike on Wednesday:

  • Cleaners
  • Clerical Staff
  • Child and Youth Workers
  • Caretakers
  • Early Childhood Educators
  • Educational Assistants
  • Information Technology Staff

As a result, a number of boards are expecting full closures, including public elementary schools as well as a number of Catholic School Boards.
