Education battleground

Bill 74, the Education Accountability Act, makes supervision of extra-curricular activities mandatory. It denies teachers the right to bargain around extra-curricular activities. After a public campaign by ETFO, the Minister announces she will not proclaim the part of the Bill that dealt with extra-curricular activities.

Also in 2000, delegates to the annual meeting vote to join the Ontario Federation of Labour and the Canadian Labour Congress.

The Hamilton-Wentworth and Keewatin-Patricia DSBs become the latest boards to lock out ETFO members during negotiations.
