To all our Custodial Members
After many conversations with management today we had to agree to disagree. The Board is our employer and although we don’t agree with the way this is playing out the following is what we know:
Staff will attend work as directed by their OPs leaders.
Prior to attending work you must complete the covid-19 assessment at https://covid-19.ontario.ca/selfassessment/#q0
You will not be assisting teachers – they are to collect their belongings and carry everything out themselves.
In supporting the online learning process, you will need to clean touch points and conducts deep clean of areas that are being accessed as well as other necessary work to ensure the safety of yourselves and others.
The Board is unsure how long it will take to get all the technology ready for staff and students. You will not be handing out any devices. Your only job for this is to clean, bag and tag the devices.
There will be days and afternoon shifts only (midnights will come down to afternoons).
