There is more unrest in Ontario schools. Education workers are stepping up their work-to-rule campaign, moving on to phase two. That means custodians, clerical staff, librarians, and early childhood educators won’t be attending meetings or helping students outside of paid hours.

Workers will be taking breaks and lunches at the same time, not completing month-end reports, or attending meetings outside of their paid hours. The 11-page report lays out all kinds of instructions for the staff who have been without a contract for over a year. That ranges from minor work like not clearing out a paper-jam in photocopiers, to not participating in parent councils. The action will affect primary and secondary schools in the District School Board Ontario North East.
