On Tuesday, December 18th, the Elementary Teachers of Toronto staged a one-day strike to send a strong message to the Liberal Government that teachers will stand up and fight to protect worker's rights, free collective bargaining, and a strong public education system; and to demand that the anti-labour Bill 115 be repealed.
