With the beginning of the school year just weeks away, 83,000 elementary school teachers in Ontario are without a contract. Union reps say the government continues to stall negotiations.
On Monday, August 14 the Elementary Teachers Federation of Ontario (ETFO) announced that Karen Brown had been re-elected as president.
Brown has served as president of the ETFO since 2021 when she became the first Black president to be elected to a provincial teacher affiliate union in Canada.
After being re-elected, Brown immediately took aim at Ontario Premier Doug Ford and his Progressive Conservative government.
