A union representing Toronto Catholic elementary teachers has suspended strike action that had been planned for next week.

The Toronto Elementary Catholic Teachers union (TECT) announced the decision on Twitter Friday.

“In a show of good faith and as a result of construction dialogue with the TCDSB (Toronto Catholic District School Board), TECT has decided to pause full withdrawal of services,” the post said.
