Putting Students First Act to be Introduced August 27, Legislature Recalled
Date: August 20, 2012
The Ontario government announced that the Legislature has been recalled for August 27, 2012 to permit the introduction of the government’s Putting Students First Act Bill.
As previously reported, the government first released a draft of the Putting Students First Act on August 16, 2012, legislation that would, if passed, impose a two-year freeze on teacher salaries and prohibit labour disruption, among other matters. Once introduced at First Reading on August 27, 2012, the normal legislative process may be expedited on agreement by all parties. Absent all-party agreement, a regular legislative process applies.
The Legislature previously adjourned until September 10, 2012.
An FTR Now discussing the potential impact of the legislation will be available shortly on our website.
