Ontario Education Unions Set to Strike | Protest Buttons October 04 2019

When Doug Ford's Progressive Conservative Party came to power in Ontario his government started making some changes and putting their stamp on things. The government set their sights on the education system, making changes that have upset many who work in Ontario schools, along with the families that attend those schools.

Some high school students staged a walk out in the Spring to voice their concerns about changes in their schools and now support staff at many Ontario schools are set to walk off the job on October 7. This staff includes custodians, educational assistants, office staff and early childhood educators. And a number of school boards have already announced that if the strikes happen, they will keep schools closed. 

A number of unions in Ontario representing teachers are also set to start negotiating with the province in the coming months.

Buttons and strikes go hand-in-hand, whatever side of things you fall on. Buttons allow you to express your ideas clearly without saying a word. 

We know that the final word on whether strike is going to happen or not can be made at the last minute so it can be hard to know when to order buttons and how many. We have you covered.

We have made 100,000s of buttons for striking unions over the years. We've also made many other statement buttons by people who want to express their own thoughts on issues that affect them.
