CUPE Hits The Picket Line

Friday November 4th, 2022, 9:52am

Members of CUPE hit the picket lines Friday morning in Windsor and all across Ontario.

The picket line went up at MPP’s offices in protest of the Ford Government enacted a law imposing a contract on them and banning them from striking. The law also includes the notwithstanding clause.

In Windsor, CUPE represents 600 employees of the Greater Essex County District School Board, including Secretaries, Clerks, Custodians, Maintenance, couriers, and Information Technology Technicians. CUPE represents about 400 employees of the Windsor-Essex Catholic District School Board, including Educational Assistants, Designated Early Childhood Educators, Child and Youth Workers and other paraprofessionals such as Psychologists, Sign Language Interpreters and Psychotherapists.

Public Schools were open Friday, while Catholic Schools were closed Friday.

Laura Walton, president of the Canadian Union of Public Employee’s Ontario School Board Council of Unions, said whether workers continue to protest after Friday “will be left up to what happens.”
