Ontario education workers vote 93 per cent in favour of job action

Ontario education workers represented by the Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE) have voted 93 per cent in favour of job action amid negotiations with the province.

The vote, which has been taking place since late August across Ontario, will leave 55,000 CUPE employees in a legal strike position as of Sept. 30.

Negotiations between the central bargaining unit, CUPE’s Ontario School Board Council of Unions, and the province are expected to continue on Tuesday and Wednesday.

President of the Council of Unions Laura Walton said they will continue to work to avoid a labour disruption but added in a release, “CUPE education workers are ready to stand up for the services that they provide and that students and families depend on.”
