The Huron-Perth Catholic District School Board hasn’t decided what they will do if education workers walk off the job Monday.
In a letter was sent to parents and posted on its website, the board says it’s contemplating a direct response to a full withdrawal of services by CUPE education workers with the interest of student safety at the forefront.
President of CUPE Local 3615 Joe Tigani tells MyStratfordNow.com that he represents approximately 200 education workers from the Huron-Perth Catholic District School Board and that those workers have joined 55-thousand Ontario school support staff across the province in a work to rule campaign after talks with the province broke down.
He says he’s hoping that “this will be the first step in a process that leads to a reasonable collective agreement” and that they “are taking it one day at a time.”
Parents with children who attend HPDSB schools are being asked to watch the board’s website for updates between now and Monday.
The Avon Maitland District School says their board isn’t impacted by the current situation.
