Kawartha Pine Ridge District School Board Announcement

In Editor Choice, Local

Further to our CUPE Labour Negotiation Update on Friday, please find below the latest information on this issue:

  • Yesterday, on Sunday, CUPE (Canadian Union of Public Employees) provided notice that if a provincial agreement is not reached during negotiations this week, they plan to begin a full withdrawal of service on Friday, November 4, 2022.
  • Today, the government of Ontario has introduced legislation that, if passed, would impose a new contract for CUPE workers, and is intended to prevent strike action.
  • In response, CUPE has suggested that they may proceed to withdraw services on Friday, in protest of the legislation.

This is a rapidly evolving situation that we are following closely.

We appreciate that this is a difficult situation, and we will continue to share further information with staff and families throughout the week once confirmed.
