ETFO soldiers on, with the exception of the CUPE education support workers, all but alone, abandoned by OECTA and OSSTF, who have taken the 1.5% contract table crumbs, and run for cover. Here are the details of ETFO WTR Phase 3, as released by the CTV and the Toronto Sun. See below:
· Not submit any long-range or short-range plans, or literacy and numeracy block plans
Hooray 4 Wynne Wednesdays: Make a statement!
Furthermore, on Wynne Wednesdays each week, the teachers will:
Refrain from any activities that take them away from their classrooms
· Demonstrate union solidarity by wearing ETFO buttons, caps or T-shirts, or a union colour
COMING: ETFO Phase 4 WTR will be announced in October, "if sufficient progress has not occurred."
NOTES: Teacher free speech salutes and encourages all affiliate solidarity with ETFO's plans. All teachers, especially the over 20% [1 in 5] of OECTA and OSSTF members who did not vote yes to ratify their contracts might now consider supporting ETFO in all their future rallies and picket activities as you consider how to straighten out the mess and deal with the CB betrayal within your own so called "teacher unions".
ETFO: the real deal?
