Negotiations with members of the Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE) - Information for parents and guardians



Tuesday, September 24, 2019

Subject: Negotiations with members of the Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE) - Information for parents and guardians

Dear Parent or Guardian,

As you may be aware, the Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE), whose collective agreement expired on August 31, is currently engaged in negotiations with the provincial government and the four (4) trustees’ associations representing Ontario’s four (4) education systems.

The Union represents custodians and tradespeople working for the Conseil des écoles catholiques du Centre-Est (CECCE).

Today, CUPE issued a press release indicating its intention to initiate job action on Monday, September 30, 2019. This situation will affect most of the province’s school boards.

Job action could have an impact on cleaning and maintenance at the CECCE’s elementary schools as well as Marie-Rivier, Ange-Gabriel and Jeanne-Lajoie high schools. 

Services at the board’s other high schools, its administrative offices, Académie catholique Notre-Dame, Éducation Permanente, and the Centre professionnel et technique Minto are provided by an external unaffiliated firm and will therefore not be affected by job action.

Regardless of any job action, schools will remain open as long as the administration can ensure the safety and well-being of students and staff.

The board will monitor developments closely and keep you informed of any changes that could affect normal school operations.

The CECCE is awaiting confirmation of future provincial bargaining dates for this group of employees. We will continue to make important updates available on the CECCE’s website, school websites, and the board's Facebook page. If you have any other questions, please contact the principal of your child’s school.
