OSSTF votes to resume extracurricular activities

Premier Kathleen Wynne is praising a vote that could see extracurricular activities resume for the province’s high school students.

The Ontario Secondary School Teachers’ Federation says local leaders have voted to suspend political action related to its labour negotiations with the Liberal government.

Most of the province’s public school teachers had stopped participating in voluntary activities to protest Bill 1-15.

The controversial law imposed two-year contracts on more than 126-thousand public educators.

Wynne says today’s announcement by the union is an indication of the hard work all parties are doing to repair the damaged relationship between the government and teachers.

O-S-S-T-F president Ken Coran says the decision to resume extracurricular activities will be left up to individual teachers.
