Parents and educators are organizing a provincial day of action tomorrow (Wednesday, July 29) at 12pm to call for a safe and well-funded reopening of schools in September.
OCUFA will join educators, parents, and students across the province to urge the government to prioritize the safety of students and workers at all Ontario’s educational institutions. As workers, parents, and educators, many of us have acutely felt the pressures of juggling our work and care responsibilities during the pandemic. We also share the concerns of our colleagues in the secondary system regarding the Ford government’s reckless and poorly-designed plans for reopening schools and campuses.
We invite you to participate in tomorrow’s day of action to amplify the voices of educators and students and to urge the government to prioritize health and safety.
To participate in the day of action your faculty association can:
- Visit your MPP’s office (you can register here)
- Post a message of solidarity on social media tagging OCUFA and your MPP and using the hashtags #SafeSeptember #fullyfundedsafeschool
- Take a selfie with our solidarity graphic and post it on social media
- Tell your friends and colleagues about the day of action and encourage them to participate
