The Union of Canadian Public Employees (CUPE), which represents education workers across the province, has notified legal strike action with effect from Monday, October 7, 2019. A legal strike can be a normal part of the collective bargaining process during labour negotiations. Preliminary agreement with the Ontario English Catholic Teachers` Association – Durham Secondary Unit Information on work measures and expected direct effects on student learning, including the management of the Grade 9 EQAO assessment, will be provided as soon as details are available. For more information on the status of the collective bargaining process, see www.dcdsb.ca/collectivebargaining. CUPE has announced its intention to intensify work measures, from rule work, to a total strike from Monday, October 7, 2019 if no negotiated solution is found before that date. On our Board of Directors, CUPE represents teaching assistants, administrators, maintenance workers, secretaries and others. We are pleased to inform you that the Ontario Education Workers Alliance (EWAO), the Government of Ontario and the Council of Conservative Associations have reached a preliminary agreement. Local collective bargaining between the Board of Directors and its SPGS partners is expected to start at the end of the central bargaining process. Parents and legal guardians receive important communications about the Messenger school system from the Board of Directors. We will continue to update our website www.dcdsb.ca/collectivebargaining. As a borough, we remain committed to caring for our students and our commitment to their well-being, safety and success remains unchanged. We have found that if no agreement has been reached and there is a total termination of his duties, it will be Friday, February 28, 2020: while deploring any disruption to student learning, we respect all our employee groups and understand that legal strikes can be a normal part of the collective bargaining process when negotiating a collective agreement. In addition to information posts, OSSTF members will begin a limited withdrawal of services as of Tuesday, November 26, 2019.
Among the work activities to the rule are among others: the Ontario Elementary School Federation (ETFO) announced that the Council of Trustees` Association (Ontario Catholic School Trustees` Association and the Ontario Public School Boards` Association) and the provincial government have successfully negotiated a draft collective agreement on the core terms of their members. For the Durham Catholic District School Board (DCDSB), our 100 designed Early Childhood Educators are among them. The details of the agreement remain confidential until it is ratified by all parties. We are also pleased to announce to all that all Durham District School Board elementary and secondary schools will be open on Monday, October 7, 2019 and that regular classes will continue. . . .
