This Friday, February 21st, all four of the province’s education sector unions (OSSTF, ETFO, OECTA, and AEFO) will be striking together in the fight against Ford and Lecce’s plans for public education in Ontario. We are asking that you please join us on the picket line in solidarity with these education workers.
Some key details:
- A group of us will be meeting at the CUPE office (KTH B111) at 11:00 AM and taking the bus from campus to the nearby schools in Westdale together (closest stop: Longwood @ King). The more, the merrier!
- It is VERY important that each person sign in with at Picket Captain upon arrival at the picket line. This goes for those who arrive in the large group, and for those who find their own transportation to the picket line. Picket Captains are typically easy to locate. Look for brightly coloured hats, vests, or other distinctive clothing.
- Come by the CUPE office anytime before 11:00 AM Friday to grab your very own 3906 toque to wear on the picket line!
- Those interested can also come by the office to make your own signs in support of Ontario’s education workers, starting at 9:00 AM Friday morning. We will provide the supplies!
* If you know you will be coming for sign making, the solidarity picket, or both, please contact Mollie at firstname.lastname@example.org so that we have an idea of how many people to expect.
