Public and Catholic schools reopening as CUPE suspends strike

Your child will be heading back to school Tuesday.

With the Canadian Union of Public Employees agreeing to send education support workers back to work Tuesday both the Upper Canada District School Board (UCDSB) and Catholic District School Board of Eastern Ontario (CDSBEO) have announced plans to reopen their schools.

The two boards initially closed all their schools on Friday, as members of the union representing 55,000 educational support workers went on strike.

The province has vowed to repeal Bill 28 at the “earliest opportunity” and continue bargaining with the union in good faith.  Bill 28 forced members into a four-year contract and banned its right to strike or carry on wage negotiations for the life of the contract.

You can read more details on the UCDSB and CDSBEO websites.
