Job action announced by Waterloo Region District School Board elementary teachers.

We would like to provide families with an update to our previous letter indicating that the Elementary Teachers’ Federation of Ontario (ETFO) will be in a legal strike position on Monday May 11, 2015. We can now inform you that ETFO will begin strike action on Monday May 11, 2015. All reports indicate that this will consist of a partial withdrawal of services. This job action applies to all elementary schools in the Waterloo Region District School Board, as well as other elementary schools in Ontario.

Based on the information received, parents can expect elementary schools to be open on Monday May 11, 2015 with all classes running as usual. All extended day child care programs will operate as regularly scheduled.

Communication continues to be very important for all families. You are encouraged to check our website: and/or follow us on Twitter @WRDSB. 

We are hopeful that both provincial and local negotiations will continue and that an agreement can be reached soon.

Thank you for your patience, support and understanding.

John Bryant
Director of Education

Kathleen Woodcock
Chair of the Board
