CUPE Job Action Update

November 06, 2022

​CUPE graphic.pngDear families,

I am writing to you today to provide an update with regards to the Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE) job action. This union represents the following employees at the ALCDSB; Educational Assistants, Early Childhood Educators, Secretaries, Youth Workers, Custodial Maintenance, and Central Clerical and Technical Staff.

CUPE continues its full withdrawal of services. As a result, all ALCDSB schools will remain closed to students Monday, November 7, 2022 and until further notice. To ensure the health and safety of staff and students all classes will be going to emergency asynchronous online learning.

If the withdrawal of services continues throughout the week, all emergency online classes will shift to synchronous learning, Wednesday, November 9, 2022. Every effort will be made to remove barriers so that all students can fully participate in their learning during this time. Also, please check your child's D2L Page for classroom instructions.

All students currently enrolled in remote learning will continue classes as normal.

In the event of a continued withdrawal of services, as of Monday, November 7, 2022;

  • Parent teacher interviews may continue as planned
  • Co-operative Education and Dual Credit programming may continue to run at offsite locations
  • Extracurricular activities, including Community Use of Schools, will NOT be running on school property
  • Before or after school and childcare programs will NOT be in operation at any ALCDSB school sites
  • Student transportation services will NOT be provided
  • Your school will communicate its technology deployment strategy through school messenger.

Please monitor your email for school messenger updates daily, visit our social media platforms or visit

Thank you for your patience and understanding,

Best regards, ​​

David DeSantis,
Director of Education

    We believe that each student, made in the image and likeness of God and being hope for the future, can be engaged in their learning and achieve at high levels with appropriate supports. We are committed to ensuring that the potential of each student is realized through the achievement of ambitious outcomes and improving in their learning to the highest possible level.

  • Stewardship

    We embrace our responsibilities for the prudent and judicious use of the resources we have been allocated. In our context, we are committed to the development and growth of all employees, responsible and accountable practices and our call to care for all of God's creation.
