Catholic teachers in Ontario are voting on whether or not to strike should negotiations break down.

The strike vote is being held by the Ontario English Catholic Teachers Association. They hope to use their members' support for a strike as a bargaining chip during the negotiation process.

On Monday night teachers in Kenora were given a presentation on the bargaining process and what a strike could look like. The strike vote ends at noon today.

The vote comes during the release of a provincial budget filled with cuts as they try to balance the books.
