Why is the Elementary Teachers' Federation of Ontario continuing to use children as punching bags in its war with Premier Dalton McGuinty

On Wednesday, the union announced it will launch strike actions in December impacting every public grade school.

ETFO says it will give parents 72 hours notice of these strikes, all part of the union's escalating protest over McGuinty's passage of Bill 115.

It froze teacher salaries which top out at well over $90,000 annually for two years and imposed minor benefit reductions as part of the government's bid to cut its more than $14 billion deficit.
