Halton District School Board Cancelling Programs And Rentals Due To Strike
The Halton District School Board states that Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE) are engaging in full withdrawal of services effective Monday, Oct. 7, 2019, if a provincial settlement is not reached by end of day on Sunday, Oct. 6. This will mean that CUPE members will not report to work.
In the Halton District School Board, CUPE represents custodial staff in elementary and secondary schools. It does not represent educational assistants, early childhood educators, or school support staff as it does in some other Ontario school boards.
At this time, schools will be open on Monday, Oct. 7.
“Please be aware that this is a fluid and changing situation. As labour action is unpredictable, we do encourage parents/guardians to make contingency plans in the event that it becomes necessary to close schools. We want to assure you that we are doing everything we can to keep our schools open. Our highest priority remains the safety and well-being of our students and staff,” says the school board.
However, all night school credit classes and the International & Indigenous Language Elementary Program (IILE) are cancelled, effective Monday, Oct. 7, until further notice. The school board will not be accepting new Community Use rental requests and all existing permits will be cancelled, effective Monday, Oct. 7, until further notice .
