VSB Members COVID-19 Update

Tuesday, July 28, 2020

Greetings:

As promised in June we are updating you on the status of return to school for September.

The union has had a very preliminary discussion with the employer regarding preparation that is currently underway for both elementary and secondary schools for September. Those discussions were focused on what structural facility preparations are currently taking place.

We will be reaching out to employee services to discuss what potential staffing requirements there could be as well as how they envision the school year rolling out? We don’t expect that meeting to take place until after we hear from the Provincial Government.

Until such time as the Provincial Government advises school districts what phase they will be operating under and how they envision schools reopening, we are all in a wait and see mode.

The Province has indicated a decision will be forthcoming in a few weeks.

Once we have confirmed information to share we will be back in touch with you again before September.

In the meantime, please remember to have your contact information up to date with the union office and if you have a colleague, who has not been receiving our bulletins, please suggest they contact the union office to be added to our contact list. They can  send their email address to: email@cupe15.org

We hope you’re having a well-deserved enjoyable summer!

In solidarity,

Warren Williams, President
Debbie Mohabir, Secretary-Treasurer
Cynthia Schadt, Acting Chief Shop Steward
Kathie Currie, Staff Representative
