It is back to the central bargaining table tomorrow for the Ontario government and its striking high school teachers. This time around, the talks are being held under the auspices of a new mediator. Class sizes and pay rates are on the discussion agenda. Meanwhile, today, the school boards representing Peel, Durham and the Sudbury area are back before the Labour Relations board, trying to have the strike declared illegal because the strike focus on central issues and not local issues. A ruling on that is expected tomorrow. More than 70-thousand Ontario high school students remain without classes.
