Message to Grand Erie Students and Families
MONDAY, OCT. 31, 2022
We want to advise you of ongoing labour negotiations and a possible withdrawal of services by education workers on Friday, November 4.
On Monday, October 31, as part of ongoing central negotiations between the province and the Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE), the Ontario government tabled legislation titled Keeping Students in Class Act.
In Grand Erie, CUPE education workers make up 920 members of our staff including Educational Assistants, Communicative Disorder Assistants, Food Technicians, Clerical (school and central board staff), Library Technicians, Information Technology staff and Custodial and Maintenance staff.
We acknowledge the impact this uncertainty has on families. The situation continues to evolve, and we will provide further updates as information becomes available.
