PM #40065782 March 16, 2020 Labour Reporter Canadian Ontario teacher's 'improper relationships' with female students triggers dismissal AN ONTARIO teacher's dismissal for not respect- ing student-teacher boundaries has been upheld. The teacher taught automotive technology at a school in Sudbury, Ont., for three years and was popular with students. He usually allowed stu- dents to spend their lunch periods in the school's auto shop. The teacher heard that the boyfriend of a fe- male student — referred to as "X" — was telling people X had given him a sexually transmitted disease (STD). After knowing about it for about a year, the teacher talked to X about it and advised her to be responsible. He understood that the stu- dent had already discussed the matter with her mother, so he didn't mention it to anyone. Another student in the teacher's class, "Y", told him she wanted to get a tattoo as a sign of solidarity with her mother, who was fighting a serious disease. Y said her father approved and she asked for a ride because her father was working. The Talks break off Ontario nurses walk away, blame Bill 124 implementation Ontario schools had volunteers perform tasks of eliminated positions VOLUNTEERS at some On- tario schools violated a collective agreement by replacing eliminat- ed bargaining unit positions. The collective agreement for the Toronto District School Board (TDSB) had a provision limiting the use of volunteers "only to en- rich programs or provide other services" that didn't adversely af- fect or permanently replace bar- gaining unit employees. In the 2012-13 school year, the TDSB made cuts to its staff. Vol- unteers were used at six schools to help fill in the gaps: GOVERNMENT Brazeau County Drayton Valley, Alta.
