You may be hearing about potential Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE) job action in schools across Ontario beginning next week. In the Peel District School Board, CUPE represents administrative assistants, library technicians, custodial, maintenance and AV repair staff. Although CUPE includes Early Childhood Educators in other school boards, they are not represented by CUPE in the Peel board.
At this time, CUPE has not informed the Ontario Public School Boards’ Association that they plan to take any job action. We must be informed of any job action five days in advance. If we become aware of any job action, we will communicate with staff and families as soon as possible. We want to be able to share what the job action is and the possible impacts it will have on learning and working in Peel schools and work sites.
We will monitor this situation and keep you updated as information becomes available.
