    Default Teacher's Striking on Friday

    I just read on my London Newsfeed that Ontario teacher's will be walking off the job on Friday. May want to watch the news tonight for details.

    All ontario teachers? I thought they weren't allowed? Does that mean they're all quitting?

    I don't know. They are saying it is all Ontario Elementary teacher's and it is a 1 day political protest.

    It sounds like all members of ETFO ... so they same ones that were on rotating strike. It just says a one day day of protest though.
