MEDIA RELEASE – Strike deadline set for CUPE Ontario’s 55000 Education Workers

As of today August 21, 2015 their has been a no-Board report stating that CUPE OSBCC Provincial Education Workers are now in a Legal Strike Position.

A no-Board report is basically saying the School Boards and Ministry are not taking CUPE serious in providing us with more Bargaining dates so it has forced us to take Legal Strike Action.

Please read the attached document and take prepare for a strike as early as the first week of School Start-up.

Local Union Leaders/Presidents will be meeting in Toronto the end of next week to discuss Strike options, work to rule options and prepare Locals for a walk out and/or lock out.
