In the absence of a provincially-negotiated collective agreement, the Ontario English Catholic Teachers’ Association (OECTA) has selected the Waterloo Catholic District School Board as one of the Ontario school boards included in a one day rotating strike on Monday, February 24, 2020.

As a result of this strike, all Waterloo Catholic District School Board elementary and secondary schools will be closed on February 24.

This one day strike is in addition to the province-wide one day OECTA strike already announced for Friday, February 21, 2020.

As before, we remain hopeful the two sides will come to a fair and respectful agreement that serves the best interests of our students.
