Labour Relations Update: November 16

Dear TLDSB community,

Talks have broken down between the province of Ontario and the Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE) and CUPE has given notice today that they are in a legal strike action (full withdrawal of services) as of Monday, November 21. Trillium Lakelands District School Board (TLDSB) is not directly involved in the provincial negotiations and we are hopeful that there will be a resolution before this date.

A reminder that in TLDSB, CUPE members include secretaries, clerks, technicians, custodial and maintenance staff, and educational assistants. These members are critical in keeping our school buildings and sites safe for students, not only for the cleanliness of our buildings, but for the support students receive each day. We respect and value our CUPE staff and are hopeful an agreement is met before Monday.

Should there be a full strike on Monday, TLDSB school buildings and worksites will be closed to students. More information will be sent in the coming days.

To find out more about the status of CUPE labour action impacting TLDSB, visit the Labour Relations Updates page on the Board’s website and follow TLDSB on social media.

If you have any questions, please contact your child(ren)’s school.
