Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) & CUPE 5100

We hope everyone is staying home, healthy and isolated. These are extremely unchartered times for us as people, school board staff and Unions. We are at the mercy of following advice given to us with the best of intentions for a better future.

A SPECIAL THANK YOU TO OUR FACILITIES STAFF MEMBERS. While most of us were hidden away, trying to avoid infection, our facilities staff continued to work to clean and disinfect our work place. Your efforts and commitment are truly appreciated.

As a Union, we are keeping in touch with OSBCU, CUPE Ontario and CUPE National. As any new instructions or information comes forward we will continue to post on our website for all to read. At present there is not much information beyond the isolation piece

Rest assured that at no time will the work of our union stop. We remain fully committed to continuing to provide support to members.

Do not hesitate to contact your union representative should you require any assistance.

In solidarity
