Status of Labour Negotiationshttp://for.scdsb.on.ca/about-us/news/school-news/18Status of Labour Negotiations<p>​The purpose of this letter is to update Simcoe County District School Board (SCDSB) families of elementary students on the status of labour negotiations with elementary school teachers. It is important to know how this situation may affect your child(ren) so we are writing to provide you with an update. </p><p>At the provincial/central bargaining table, the Elementary Teachers’ Federation of Ontario (ETFO) filed for conciliation and made the request for a No-Board Report. On April 24, 2015,</p><p>ETFO announced that they were in receipt of a No-Board Report. As such, elementary school teachers across the province are in a legal strike position as of May 10, 2015. On Monday, May 4, 2015, school boards received official notice that ETFO would commence provincial job action on Monday, May 11, 2015.</p><p>At this time, ETFO has not officially confirmed what form this job action will take. ETFO has indicated that they will not be sharing this information with our school board until late afternoon on Friday, May 8, 2015.</p><p>We are disappointed that our union partners have chosen to share this information with our school board at such a late date, as we know that our parents and families are concerned about the impact on their child(ren). Our priority during any job action is the safety of our students and making sure our families are kept informed. </p><p>As this situation progresses we will ensure that parents and our school communities are provided with up-to-date, relevant information as it becomes available. When we receive official confirmation later tomorrow afternoon on the details of the job action starting Monday, May 11, we will share it via the following channels:</p><ul><li>Phone calls and emails to families of all affected students</li><li>Communication with local media</li><li>Website updates on school websites and on the main SCDSB site (<a href="http://www.scdsb.on.ca/Board/Pages/Labour-Situation.aspx" target="_blank">www.scdsb.on.ca/Board/Pages/Labour-Situation.aspx</a>)</li><li>Social media updates - follow <a href="http://www.twitter.com/SCDSB_Schools" target="_blank">@SCDSB_Schools</a> on Twitter and/or like our page on Facebook at <a href="http://www.facebook.com/SCDSB" target="_blank">www.facebook.com/SCDSB</a> <br></li></ul><p>For additional updates, continue to check our main website and follow us on social media.</p><p>As a board, we respect our elementary teachers and value their work with students. We remain committed to reaching fair, negotiated agreements and avoiding any disruption to student learning. Thank you for your patience, support and understanding.</p><p>Peter Beacock, Chair<br> Kathi Wallace, Director of Education</p>
