Ontario education unions say it’s too early to talk about what they will seek in light of a ruling that found the Liberal government interfered in collective bargaining when it imposed contracts on teachers and staff back in 2012, though court costs are an obvious start.
Education Minister Liz Sandals said she’s waiting for word from her department’s lawyers on what the “remedy” will entail and whether the ruling should be appealed.
“People are reviewing the ruling. I am not a lawyer,” said Sandals, who tried to distance herself and Premier Kathleen Wynne from the controversial bill. However, both voted in favour of it when Dalton McGuinty was premier and Laurel Broten education minister.
