Why I joined the Ontario Education Workers Rank-and-File Committee: Dispatches from a public school teacher

The World Socialist Web Site received the following letter from a public school teacher in Ontario explaining why she decided to join the recently established Ontario Education Workers Rank-and-File Committee (OEWRFC).

Some 200,000 Ontario teachers joined a powerful one-day province-wide strike against the Ford government’s budget cuts and concessionary contract demands, Feb. 21, 2020. However, just weeks later the unions used the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic as the pretext to suspend all further job action and impose sell-out contracts. [Photo: WSWS]

The OEWRFC was created last month by teachers, caretakers and education assistants to mobilize all education workers in the province in a political struggle independently of the trade unions for an end to the COVID-19 pandemic and in defense of public education.
