The Ontario English Catholic Teachers’ Association (OECTA) has announced that all of its members will be engaging in a one-day strike on Friday, February 21st, 2020. This decision affects all Catholic district school boards in Ontario.  In the absence of a provincially-negotiated collective agreement the Ontario English Catholic Teachers’ Association (OECTA) has selected the WCDSB as one of the Ontario school boards included in a one day rotating strike on Monday, February 24th.

As a result of this strike, all Waterloo Catholic District School Board Elementary and Secondary schools will be closed on:

Friday, February 21st, and

Monday, February 24th.

As before, we remain hopeful the two sides will return to the bargaining table quickly and will come to a fair and respectful agreement that serves the best interests of our students.
