CUPE Getting Into Strike Position

One of the unions representing Ontario education workers has taken an initial step toward a legal strike position. The Canadian Union of Public Employees says it has asked for a “no-board report,” which starts a countdown toward a potential strike. C.U.P.E. represents 55,000 workers such as custodians, clerical staff and educational assistants. They say they will be in a legal strike position for the week of September 23rd. In the meantime, contract talks are continuing, with wages, benefits, job security and sick leave the key issues at the table.

Other unions have also said they are considering job action in the Ontario education system.
