Several school boards in the province say its schools will be closed to students in the event of a strike by CUPE on Monday.
One of those Boards is the Huron Superior Catholic District School Board.
The District Catholic School Board says CUPE represents over 40% of all permanent staff and its felt that in the absence of these employees, the schools can’t operate in a manner that would ensure student safety and well being.
The Board will be providing updates through their website.
The Algoma District School Board says its schools will remain open to students in the event of a strike next week.
However, there will be some impacts including no food services at its secondary schools and all extra curricular activities outside the school day and inter-school sports are cancelled.
The impacts do not apply to schools in Elliot Lake, Serpent River and Blind River as workers at those sites are not CUPE members.
The Board will be monitoring its decision day to day.
Meantime talks between the Ontario government and CUPE resume today.
The talks are set to continue through the weekend.
