Labour Relations Update - February 24, 2020

OSSTF announced it intends to hold another one-day strike in select school boards, including the OCDSB, on Friday, February 28, unless an agreement is reached.

If this takes place, all OCDSB elementary and secondary schools will be closed to students on Friday, February 28th. 

The closure will include our regular school day activities, Co-op, Ontario Youth Apprenticeship Program (OYAP), dual credit courses and home instruction as well as extra-curricular activities, field trips, clubs and testing activities planned for February 28th. 

Extended Day Programs operated by the OCDSB will also be cancelled. Parents are asked to confirm with third-party providers for details. All community use of school permits for February 28th will be cancelled.

The OCDSB remains hopeful that an agreement can be reached at the central bargaining tables. However, we continue to encourage families to make plans for alternate childcare arrangements for the coming weeks. We will continue to provide notice of the walkout days affecting OCDSB as soon as they are announced by the unions. Parents should also monitor email, media, and the district and school websites for updates.
