Ontario: The Ontario government will repeal a law that imposed contracts on the education workers and stripped them of their right to strike.

But the strike came despite thousands of workers led by Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE) calling the strike illegal. Due to which many schools in the province were closed for two days for in-person learning.

Last week, Premier Doug Ford offered to repeal the bill in exchange for workers who went on strike to return to work. After this, the striking employees returned to the work. Now the two sides are holding fresh talks today.
