LABOUR RELATIONS UPDATE #6 – November 20, 2022

Ontario Government and CUPE Reach a Tentative Agreement

We are pleased to report that a tentative agreement was reached tonight between the Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE) and the Ontario Government.  Within the Nipissing-Parry Sound Catholic District School Board, CUPE represents custodians and system maintenance staff.  

The agreement will avoid CUPE’s previously announced province-wide full withdrawal of services which was scheduled to commence Monday, November 21.   Our schools continue to be open and community use of schools will resume.

We very much appreciate your patience, support and understanding during this period of uncertainty.  We are grateful for the exemplary efforts and work of all those involved in achieving a negotiated agreement. 

Thank you for your ongoing commitment to Catholic education.
