A Message from the NTCI Parents Mailing List:
Please see the letter below from the Chair and Director of the TDSB:
Dear Students, Parents and Guardians,
We want to take this opportunity to update you on labour negotiations with
secondary contract teachers represented by the Ontario Secondary School
Teachers' Federation District 12 (OSSTF) and to advise you on the impact of
their labour action on final report cards.
As you may know, the OSSTF has not yet reached a local collective agreement
with the TDSB and is continuing its strike-related action by withdrawing
selected services. As a result, OSSTF has directed high school teachers to only
provide marks on final report cards and to withhold any additional information
about student achievement (teacher comments). The OSSTF has also directed high
school teachers not to provide teacher comments to Principals and
As some students will not receive their report cards in the mail until July,
students and parents should contact teachers directly by June 30 should they
have questions or concerns about student progress.
The TDSB is disappointed that we have not been able to reach an agreement with
the OSSTF and we regret that they are directing teachers to take this action.
The TDSB has successfully negotiated local collective agreements with all of
our employee groups, except OSSTF. We want to assure you that the TDSB is
committed to reaching a fair contract agreement with the OSSTF and we are
prepared to continue negotiations over the summer break to reach an agreement.
As always, please continue to monitor the TDSB website at www.tdsb.on.ca and
social media (@TDSB on Twitter or Toronto District School Board on Facebook)
for any updates on negotiations.
Director of Education
