The East York-Scarborough Reading Association is aware that there is some concern regarding the current labour dispute in Ontario and the joint province-wide strike on Friday, February 21st.
We want to reassure registered and potential attendees that the conference is still being held on February 20th and 21st.
Our association is an independent, non-profit organization and is not connected to school boards or unions. All unions have confirmed that our professional development is not "struck" work and therefore not part of the work to rule associated with the provincial job action.
We can also confirm that two of the largest Ontario Teacher Unions, the Elementary Teachers' Federation of Ontario (ETFO), and the Ontario English Catholic Teachers' Association (OECTA), have agreed to allow their members to attend the conference on either or both days of the conference. This includes Friday, February 21st.
The association executive maintains that we are not issuing any refunds related to the current job action.
The 44th Annual Reading for the Love of It 2020 conference looks forward to welcoming teachers from across Canada again this February!
