The Ontario English Catholic Teachers’ Association (OECTA) has filed a complaint with the Ontario Labour Relations Board, claiming that the government has pre-empted bargaining discussions when it amended class size regulations in August 2019.

OECTA believes this move by the Ford government is “in violation of the government’s obligation to bargain in good faith.”
