November 7, 2022 - The Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE) announced that they will be returning to work tomorrow, Tuesday, November 8, 2022 following confirmation from the Government of Ontario that it will be revoking legislation passed last week. As a result, all TDSB schools will re-open to in-person student learning November 8, 2022.

October 31, 2022 - The Government of Ontario has introduced legislation that, if passed, aims to prevent strikes and establishes a four-year collective agreement with CUPE education workers across the province.

October 30, 2022 - The Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE) announced that should a deal not be reached by Friday, November 4, then CUPE education workers across the province will be on a full strike (full withdrawal of services) on that day.

October 17, 2022 – The Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE) announced that a conciliator has issued a “no board report”, meaning that a legal strike could occur no sooner than 17 days (November 3, 2022). This does not mean that there will be labour disruption, and in the meantime, negotiations continue. The  School Boards Collective Bargaining Act requires that a union planning to take labour action must provide five days notice to the employer bargaining agency. The TDSB is hopeful that all sides will be able to reach a collective agreement that avoids any impacts to classrooms.
