Cupe Labour Update

Below you will find an email from the Director of Education of Trillium Lakelands DSB providing a CUPE labour update. 

What does this mean for VLC?

If the strike action (full withdrawal of services) continues VLC students will continue to follow their current timetable. So Open Office, Live classes and Asynchronous Learning will run as scheduled.

Please note that our office/technical staff will be reduced and you may experience longer wait times when contacting the office. We recommend that you contact the office through email at [email protected]. We will not have our elearning technicians to be able to provide technical support. Please continue to submit tickets and they will be answered upon their return. 

Dear TLDSB families,

Thank you for your patience and understanding during this time of labour action between the government of Ontario and the Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE). As discussions between these groups continue, we will keep you up-to-date on the status of learning next week and send you another update this Sunday, November 6. Please be prepared with alternative arrangements for your child(ren) next week should the strike continue.

If there is no resolution made before Monday, November 7, and the strike action (full withdrawal of services) continues, students will be provided with asynchronous work from their teacher on their online classroom platform (Google Classroom, Brightspace, Seesaw) on Monday. Your child(ren)’s teacher will be reaching out to ensure students are prepared for learning.

For all labour updates as they relate to Trillium Lakelands District School Board, visit our Labour Relations Update page.

I am committed to keeping you informed and will share an update as quickly as possible.
