I wanted to make you aware of recent changes in the labour situation and share with you how those changes may affect our elementary and secondary schools.
This week the Ontario Secondary School Teachers' Federation (OSSTF) announced strike sanctions beginning Monday October 5th. These sanctions affect educational support workers. The OCDSB has 5 OSSTF bargaining units which represent elementary and secondary educational support workers.
educational support professionals such as school office administrators and office assistants, guidance services assistants and staff in central departments;
custodial and maintenance staff;
psychologists, social workers, speech and language pathologists;
educational assistants and early childhood educators;
Language Instructors for Newcomers to Canada (LINC) and Adult English as a Second Language (ESL) instructors and childcare staff.
OSSTF released the sanctions to their members this week. More information about the impact of these sanctions is available on our Labour Relations webpage.
A legal strike action creates a challenging situation for everyone involved. We are continuing to work to address the issues associated with the sanctions. We remain committed to keeping you informed and are so appreciative of the ongoing support and understanding of the parent community.
