Midwestern Ontario school boards respond to CUPE strike notice

School boards in central western Ontario are drawing up plans for a possible strike by CUPE members on Monday.

The Upper Grand District School Board said it is closely monitoring the labor situation while continuing to develop contingency plans. The board has issued a statement saying it will do everything in its power to allow students to learn in person. But the Board acknowledges that continuing classes would be very challenging without the services of CUPE staff. The Board will provide more information on the UGDSB’s plans for next week as soon as possible.

The Huron Perth Catholic District School Board is advising parents to start preparing for remote learning from Monday. The board will be handing out Chromebooks to students on Wednesday and Thursday and is warning parents to prepare for remote learning over the next few days.

Avon Maitland School District does not have CUPE staff.
