President’s Report: January Return to School

Dear Brothers and Sisters:

At this time, I only know what I have seen at the press conference today.

The plan going forward? I would hope that is the reason for the delay in the return to school for students. So a plan can be formalized before January 10th. The unions position? As it has been since March of 2020, our focus is to keep our members safe! We have advocated since day one, our health and safety should be priority number one. We will continue to do so.

We are constrained in our ability to dictate to the employer and government by Public Health, the Ministry of Education, Worksafe Regulations and the Center for Disease Control. We will continue to do everything within our control to keep our members safe.

We will keep you updated as we learn more. Please check our Website for updates.

In Solidarity,


Ian Hillman
President, CUPE 716
