There was a press release issued this morning informing us that the Ontario government has approved an emergency order that would enable available school board employees to be voluntarily redeployed.
Together with the OSBCU we have been proactive in preparing for this. We have worked to ensure that this process would be voluntary and that appropriate safety measures would be in place.
Further to this morning’s announcement, we anticipate that the OSBCU will conduct a call with Local Presidents at some point this weekend to provide further clarification. At this point there are more questions than answers.
Please see attached a copy of the news release from the Ontario Government, as well as a memo from the OSBCU.
We thank you for understanding and reassure you that we will be sharing further information as soon as it becomes available.
Mary Di Federico
President CUPE 2331
