Local 441 Members,
I have had a brief discussion with the STA regarding Friday and Monday.
Friday will be a normal picketing day so we will be honouring the lines as per normal. I will send out another email about our plans later once I have heard back from the picket captains to ensure they have their packages and signs and are ready to go for7am. We do need a volunteer captain for the 7-11 shift at Prospect Lake.
Monday from what I understand so far is a province wide study session for the BCTF. This means that they are withdrawing their services but NOT putting up picket lines on Monday. We have a contract and are not in a job action position, since there will be no picket lines on Monday all CUPE members work their regular shift on Monday. There may be a rally so if you are off shift on Monday I invite you to join the rally and wear a CUPE support sign.
Beyond Monday is still unknown.
I am back in Vancouver for a K-12 Presidents’ Council meeting Monday and Tuesday next week.
Please watch for my email later today
