On Thursday, December 7, 2017, the Governing Council of the Ontario College of Teachers (OCT) voted not to raise the annual OCT fees.
This decision came following a presentation by Chris Cowley, OTF President, on the morning of December 7 to the Council. Cowley made it clear that the proposed fee increase of 20% was “not palatable to Ontario’s teachers and is counter-productive to OCT’s own strategic priorities.”
“The teachers of Ontario applaud the decision of College Council,” states Chris Cowley, OTF President. “Asking us to pay 20% more in fees to pay off OCT’s mortgage was unacceptable. I am glad the College listened to the views of our members and reconsidered this increase.”
