LETTER TO PARENTS/GUARDIANS - NOVEMBER 30, 2016

November 30, 2016

Parents/Guardians:

We have been advised that there is a student group organizing a student walkout later this week, possibly Thursday, December 1st or Friday, December 2nd.  This event is not a school-organized event, is not sanctioned by the school and will not be supervised by our staff. 

 

While we respect the rights of students to express themselves, we are concerned about the safety of our students if they decide to leave the school to take part in this event without proper permissions, guidance or supervision.  We ask that you please discuss this with your child.

​NSTU Labour Action – Information for Parents & Guardians

NSTU to begin work-to-rule strike on December 5th

On November 28th, the Nova Scotia Teachers Union alerted media that it intends to begin a work-to-rule strike action on Monday, December 5th at all schools in Nova Scotia.

The NSTU has described the work-to-rule in this way: Teachers will continue to carry out their instructional duties in classrooms, but will not support any extracurricular activities like concerts, coaching teams or supervising clubs; field trips will not go ahead. The NSTU has indicated that teachers will arrive 20 minutes before school and leave 20 minutes after, as stipulated in the Teachers Provincial Agreement.

More details about the impact of a work-to-rule strike on TCRSB schools and students will be made available in the coming days.

Please continue to monitor the TCRSB website at www.tcrsb.ca/NSTU_Job_Action and the mainstream media for updates and developments.  

COMMUNICATION FROM THE SUPERINTENDENT

​Re: NSTU Potential Labour Action

Over the past several days you have received communication informing you of the possible strike action being considered by the Nova Scotia Teachers Union (NSTU). I wanted to communicate to you to address some developments with regards to this potential action, should a strike be realized.

There is much work being done to assess and plan for the possibility of a strike action across our province and to ensure we are prepared to act in the best interests of our school communities.

Through our contingency planning work with the province, a decision has been made about non-striking employees. The decision is that non-striking employees will not be subject to a board imposed layoff should there be a full on global strike by the NSTU.

We are meeting with managers and supervisors working through various scenarios and how that may affect work assignments, as well as communicating with other union groups within our board. We would ask that you continue with business as usual at this time.

We will continue to reach out to you in the coming days as more information becomes available. All public information will also be available via our web site: www.tcrsb.ca.
