School boards in Peel and Durham have confirmed their elementary teachers will strike on Tuesday.

Both boards said Elementary Teachers’ Federation of Ontario had given them official notice of their one-day strike dates on Saturday morning.  

Teachers in the Toronto District School Board will also stage a one-day strike on Tuesday. The schools in all three districts will reopen on Wednesday.

The Toronto teachers have been in a legal strike position since Dec. 10 and haven’t been participating in field trips, play days or voluntary and extracurricular activities.

The union says the walkouts are in protest of a controversial law that allows the government to stop strikes, freeze wages and cut benefits.

It says it wants the government to repeal the law because it’s unconstitutional and violates their collective bargaining rights.

Teachers from Greater Essex, Near North, Grand Erie, Waterloo Region and Lambton-Kent boards will also be off the job on Tuesday.

Teachers in the Hamilton area will walk out Monday, along with those at three school boards in northern Ontario.

If teachers don’t reach local deals with their school boards by Dec. 31, the province will impose one that will freeze the wages of most instructors and cut their benefits, such as the number of sick days they’re allowed to take each year.
