MUSKOKA - The parents of Muskoka secondary school students received the following strike action reminder via email this afternoon.
"This is a reminder that secondary school teachers and education workers may be participating in a one-day strike on Wednesday, Dec. 4 if an agreement is not reached with the province by this date. If this takes place, secondary schools as well as Adult and Alternate Education Centres in Trillium Lakelands District School Board will be closed to students. Schools will open again for students on Thursday, Dec. 5.
You will receive communication on Tuesday, Dec. 3 IF the one-day strike is going to proceed. We appreciate your understanding as we continue to work to support our students and their families."
On Nov. 28 The Ontario Secondary School Teachers’ Federation (OSSTF) announced that their members will participate in a one-day, province wide strike (full withdrawal of services) on Wednesday, Dec. 4 if a new agreement with the province is not reached by then.

Currently both OSSTF and the Elementary Teachers Federation of Ontario (ETFO) continue job action during the school day which does not impact students and families. TLDSB hopes that a provincial agreement with both ETFO and OSSTF can be reached soon.
