Labour Update

 

January 20, 2020

Tuesday, January 21, 2020, All Ottawa Catholic School Board Schools (OCSB) Will Be Closed, and Student Transportation Cancelled (OSTA)
All Ottawa Catholic School Board Elementary, Intermediate and Secondary schools will be closed tomorrow - Tuesday, January 21, 2020. Student transportation will also be cancelled for OCSB students.

Classes resume on January 22, 2020.

Why
Our teachers are members of the Ontario English Catholic Teachers' Association (OECTA), and they are participating in a one-day provincial strike.

What Else is Affected by the One-day Strike
The one-day closure also includes all regular school day activities, Co-op, OYAP, dual credit, home instruction, extra-curricular activities, field trips, and clubs. The Community Use of Schools programming is NOT affected by the one-day provincial strike.

What About Child Care Programming
Before and after school programs will be cancelled for the day. As per our policies, parents will be reimbursed for any closures exceeding 3 days annually. However, all Ottawa Catholic Child Care Corporation Toddler and Preschool programs and all EarlyOn Centres will be open and will operate according to their regular hours.

High School Exams Are Not Affected
There is NO CHANGE to the high school exam schedule. High School exams will take place between January 23 through January 29, 2020.

Government Reimbursement
Parents who wish to apply for government reimbursement for child care costs related to labour unrest may direct their questions to the Support for Parents Helpline at 888-444-3770 or https://www.ontario.ca/page/education-contract-talks-stay-updated

Labour Updates
We will provide regular labour updates through our website, social media channels and via School Messenger to keep you up-to-date regarding labour negotiations.

Thank you
Thank you for your continued support as we move through the labour disruption process. We pray a resolution can be settled at the central bargaining table when they reconvene.
