Wednesday and Thursday Picket Information

Good Evening Members

We have received the following email from the our employer regarding picket lines and work over the next few day:

While we are very pleased with the announcement of a tentative agreement reached between the BCTF and the government today , it is important to note that the strike remains in effect until the agreement has been ratified.

The STA has confirmed that there will be picket lines across the district tomorrow , Wednesday, Sept. 17 so CUPE staff are not expected to report to work tomorrow .

On Thursday , Sept. 18 all STA members will attend a Study Session which will take place at Stelly’s. There will be no picket lines on Thursday so all CUPE employees in an assignment will be expected to report for work at the usual time and location.

Hopefully the tentative agreement will be ratified by the parties on Thursday which would mean that all employees can report for work on Friday , but we will have to wait and see what happens. Until then, we look forward to seeing you on Thursday .
