Important information regarding CUPE job action

The Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE) has provided notice that they will be starting a full strike – withdrawal of all services – across the province on Monday, October 7, 2019. TLDSB schools, (including VLC), continue to remain open to staff and students for the remainder of this week.


Trillium Lakelands District School Board is confirming details of the strike action and assessing the potential impact on school operations. The health and safety of our students is our priority. We want our school communities to be aware that this strike action by CUPE may result in school closures as of Monday, October 7, 2019. Families are strongly encouraged to begin making alternate arrangements prior to this potential strike beginning on Monday, October 7, 2019. We will communicate via the Important News section of our website and in the Student Guide Announcements once a decision is made about potential school closures.


We understand that a strike may have a significant impact on school communities and we appreciate that timely communication is important. We commit to providing you with additional details on the CUPE job action as soon as we can.
