The Ottawa Carleton District School Board is warning parents and students to be prepared for some delays, as strike action kicks off at its schools. 

Members of the Elementary Teachers Federation of Ontario and Ontario Secondary School Teachers Federation say action, which gets underway Tuesday, will be in the form of work-to-rule or partial withdrawl of service. 

All classroom activities, extracurricular programs and extended day programs will continue as usual. 

Elementary and occasional teachers will take part in solidarity action by meeting outside of schools 15 minutes before the start of classes and walking in together. 

Information pickets will be held outside of high schools before classes start, during the lunch hour and after school. 

Local union officials have advised that these pickets are intended to be friendly and meant to provide general information, and access to schools will not be effected.
