TORONTO — Ontario’s education minister is defending his statement that a high school teachers’ union wants $1.5 billion in raises, even though his own ministry says the cost to give them the raise they’ve asked for would be $294 million.

Minister Stephen Lecce is warring with the Ontario Secondary School Teachers’ Federation (OSSTF), whose members plan to walk off the job for a one-day strike Wednesday.

If OSSTF’s members get their demand for annual raises that are tied to the cost of living and a six-per cent funding increase for benefits, Ontario will be spending $293.9 million more per year by 2021/22, according to figures provided by Lecce’s staff Tuesday.

Teacher contract talks at standstill as deadline for one-day strike looms

  Teacher contract talks at standstill as deadline for one-day strike looms TORONTO — Contract talks between the Ontario government and the union representing the province's public high school teachers appeared to be at a standstill Tuesday ahead of a possible one-day strike that could close many schools across Ontario. Education Minister Stephen Lecce said his bargaining team had presented a new "framework" to negotiators for the Ontario Secondary Teachers' Federation in a bid to keep all parties at the table.

The hard left union leader insisted the Labour leadership have gone out of their way to try to address manifest concerns that the party harbours anti-Semites and Jew haters – drawing up a definition of anti-Semitism and speeding up disciplinary hearings for those accused of the racism.

The cost would only rise to more than $1.5 billion if the Ontario government gives the same deal to all other teachers and education workers represented by different unions, the figures show.

‘$1.5-billion expenditure to the taxpayer’

“The impact of their request is a $1.5-billion expenditure for the taxpayer. That is accurate,” Lecce said Tuesday at a press conference at Queen’s Park. “They choose not to consider the impact outside of OSSTF as if they live in isolation to the other unions … but they don’t.”

A recent agreement between Ontario and the Canadian Union of Public Employees, which represents support staff, includes a so-called “me too” clause to guarantee those workers the same raises as teachers if a teachers’ union negotiates a better deal.

"We came to the hotel on Saturday morning four days ago with hope -- hope that the government would finally move forward with proposals that are good for Ontario students," Harvey Bischof, president of the Ontario Secondary School Teachers’ Federation (OSSTF), told reporters during a news conference at the Sheraton Hotel in downtown Toronto Tuesday evening.

But the government hasn’t reached new agreements with any of the four major teachers unions, so it is yet to be seen whether other contracts will include the same clause.

Lecce’s government has passed a bill that limits raises for public-sector workers to one per cent per year. OSSTF wants a salary increase for its members that is tied to inflation, which would be about two per cent per year.

On Friday, Lecce said OSSTF should be “shamed” for its “unacceptable” demand for $1.5 billion more in compensation.

In response, OSSTF president Harvey Bischof told reporters the minister was just trying to turn up the heat on unions.

  Public high schools in Ontario closed today as teachers hold one-day strike TORONTO — Hundreds of thousands of high school students will be out of class Wednesday as their teachers hold a one-day strike to protest the lack of progress in contract talks between their union and Premier Doug Ford's government.

The media caught up with Minister of Education Patrick Faber in a separate event in Belize City this afternoon; however, he out rightly refused to offer any comment on the upcoming teacher’s strike. According to Faber, everything he needs to say- has already been said.

“This minister is intent on inflating the number, ratcheting up the rhetoric, which is the opposite of good-faith bargaining,” Bischof said. “It concerns me very much that his desire right now is to demonize my members.”

He said the chance of avoiding a strike Wednesday, which will affect dozens of school boards, was “almost none.”

NDP Leader Andrea Horwath said the numbers released by Lecce’s office Tuesday were designed to worry and confuse the public.

“Every time Mr. Lecce stands at this podium, his made-up numbers get bigger,” Horwath said at her own press conference.

Elementary teachers in Ontario’s English public schools ramped up their own job action Tuesday.

The Elementary Teachers’ Federation of Ontario moved into a new phase of work-to-rule, saying that teachers would not plan field trips or distribute letters and memos from schools and school boards.
