Back-to-work legislation may get Ontario students back in their seats but it would also spark further teacher unrest, warn supporters.

    Having been part of the game of Teachers vs Government and/or School Board over many many years, I understand why OSSTF behaves the way it does and how it plans strikes to get what they want by disrupting learning of students. Money however does not grow on trees. Teachers are paid well. They have 194 work days a year, paid sick days and personal days off for appointments, adequate planning time, excellent pension ops etc. There are better ways to negotiate successfully without using students as pawns and ticking off the taxpayers who look at this action as OSSTF's attitude of entitlement. Look into best practices for negotiations.

    This is so troubling. The same issue occurred last year in BC and the affect was on the children and the parents that had to support them while out of school. The unions get so entrenched in their ideals and their wants they can't see the other side. The unions only want what is best for them and it has nothing to do with the best interests of the children no matter how often they say it does. It's time to get back to work!

    It seems all teachers across canada are in the same mind set?

    my mother was a teacher and never experienced this rubbish.

    I don't believe she was in a union either!

    The government is doing the right thing by legislating the strike end as thousands of students school year is at stake especially those going to the universities. I am happy with Wynne government at least on this action. In my opinion the teachers' services should be declared as a public services and should not be allowed to strike.

    Met a teacher from Ontario recently and had an interesting conversation. Yes teachers across canada are paid well and think everyone else is also.

    Hello, come work in HR for a bit and see how complaining about nothing really just does not fit into the picture.
