TDSB letter to Parents/Guardians regarding job action 

Please refer to the TDSB website for more information.

8 May, 2015

Dear Parents/Guardians of Elementary and Junior High School Students,

We would like to provide you with a further update with regards to planned job action by
the Elementary Teachers’ Federation of Ontario (ETFO).

ETFO has formally given notice that elementary teachers will begin a partial withdrawal
of service on Monday, May 11, 2015.
The law permits the partial withdrawal of service while in a strike position. 

All TDSB schools will remain open 
and programming will continue.

ETFO has directed teachers to continue to:

  • Teach and provide extra help to students.
  • Take attendance.
  • Maintain contact with parents/guardians regarding students during the instructional day.
  • Provide scheduled supervisory duties.
  • Participate in extra-curricular activities.

ETFO has directed teachers to not:

  • Participate in EQAO (standardized testing).
  • Participate in other Ministry of Education initiatives.

We encourage all parents/guardians to monitor the TDSB website at or
follow us on Twitter at @TDSB for regular updates.

We remain hopeful that a mutually acceptable resolution can be reached without
further disruptions to the school day.


Shaun Chen, Chair of the Board

Donna Quan, Director of Education
