Case No. 2305 against the Government of Ontario

October 2003
Case status: 

Back to School (Toronto Catholic Elementary) and Education and Provincial Schools Negotiations Amendment Act, 2003 (Bills 28, June)
     The Act ended a lockout and prevented those teachers from participating in any work-to-rule campaign once back in the classroom, unilaterally imposed a mediation-arbitration scheme that does not meet requirements of independence and impartiality and brought additional restrictions on the collective bargaining rights of teachers.

Submitted by Education International (EI) on behalf of the Canadian Teachers’ Federation (CTF), the Ontario Teachers’ Federation (OTF) and the Ontario English Catholic Teachers’ Association (OECTA) (October 2003).

      This legislation was found not to comply with ILO freedom of association principles.
