OCUFA stands in solidarity with the Elementary Teachers’ Federation of Ontario (ETFO) and the Ontario English Catholic Teachers’ Association (OECTA) educators and support staff as they stand up to Doug Ford and escalate their job actions this week.
Ontario’s university faculty believe in the importance of a strong, publicly funded provincial education system – from kindergarten through to university. All children in Ontario deserve a high-quality and safe education in classrooms with the resources students need to thrive. This vital foundation for learning is threatened by the Ford government’s deep cuts to education.
Teachers and support staff are the heart of public education, and today these workers are escalating their efforts to defend public education in our province. Ontario’s university faculty firmly support our fellow educators and education unions in rejecting Ford’s cuts to Ontario’s important public services.
