Important Information for K-12 Locals and Members

Important Information for K-12 Locals and Members

Premier John Horgan announced yesterday that in-class instruction has been suspended indefinitely in all B.C. schools to help prevent the spread of COVID-19.

CUPE, along with other stakeholders in education, have been involved in discussions with our provincial government around school closures and what that will look like for our members. We have also been in discussion with BCPSEA and tabled our urgency to find agreement on the continuation of wages and benefits for our members in K-12. We haven’t heard back from BCPSEA and we will notify you immediately when we do.

Please read this bulletin from K-12 Presidents Council President Warren Williams.

Read a letter to parents, guardians and staff from Minister Rob Fleming.
