Contract Negotiations Update – November 22, 2019 11:30 a.m.

November 22, 2019

​The Lambton Kent District School Board (LKDSB) has been notified that members of the Ontario Secondary School Teachers' Federation (OSSTF) will join their colleagues across the province in a legal strike, involving a partial withdrawal of services, effective Tuesday, November 26, 2019, unless a settlement is reached prior to this date. Contract negotiations between the Ministry of Education, the Ontario Public School Boards' Association and OSSTF are ongoing and the LKDSB remains hopeful that a negotiated settlement can be reached.

The LKDSB understands this can create some uncertainty within schools. The LKDSB is working with OSSTF to determine exactly how the strike will impact its schools. Based on the information to date, secondary schools will be open to students on Tuesday, November 26 with no interruption to classes or extra-curricular activities.

Please be assured that the LKDSB's top priority is maintaining safe and positive learning environments for students.

Updates regarding OSSTF contract negotiations will be posted on this webpage.
