TORONTO – The union representing 55,000 education workers in Ontario said its members have begun phase two of their work-to-rule campaign on Tuesday.

The education workers include custodians, clerical staff, educational assistants, librarians, early childhood educators and instructors.

They’re being asked to take their breaks and lunches together, not to complete month end reports, or attend meetings or assist students outside of their paid hours.

Support staff have been working without a contract for more than a year.

Other instructions included were custodians being told not to unlock doors for staff who are supplied their own keys, not sweeping hallways and for clerical staff not to clear photocopier jams and not to supervise any students in the office.

A full list of instructions can be found here.
