CUPE reaches tentative agreement; suspends work-to-rule actionhttp://pss.scdsb.on.ca/about-us/news/board-news/40CUPE reaches tentative agreement; suspends work-to-rule action <p>The collective bargaining agreement between the Simcoe County District School Board (SCDSB) and the Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE) expired on August 31, 2014. In the SCDSB, CUPE represents our custodial and maintenance staff. Since September 10, 2015, CUPE members have been engaged in provincial job action in the form of a work-to-rule campaign.   </p><p><strong>On November 2, CUPE reached a tentative agreement at the central bargaining table with the Government of Ontario and the Ontario Public School Boards’ Association (OPSBA).  </strong>The tentative deal must be endorsed by CUPE's local leaders before it is presented to all CUPE members for ratification. CUPE has agreed to suspend central job action while ratification takes place.  Terms of the tentative agreement have not yet been made public. </p><p> To learn more about the labour situation, visit the <a href="http://scdsb.on.ca/Board/Pages/Labour-Situation.aspx" target="_blank">Labour Situation page</a> on the SCDSB's website.</p>
Get Ready to Generate Some Excitement!http://pss.scdsb.on.ca/about-us/news/school-news/9Get Ready to Generate Some Excitement!<p>​<span lang="EN-CA">The Simcoe County District School Board has partnered with AMP Solar Group and Potentia Solar to install solar panels on the rooftops of 41 schools across the County, generating over 4 mW. The 41 schools were successful applications approved by the Ontario Power Authority as part of the Feed In Tariff (FIT) program, producing renewable energy to feed the provincial energy grid. As part of this partnership, students will be able to monitor the energy produced at their school and compare it to other schools in the County as well as other schools in Ontario. Students will have access to real data that can be used in the classroom. Students will also have opportunities to engage in solar and renewable energy workshops and presentations at their school. The preparation for construction will commence March 11 and will be fully operational by the end of July. Revenue generated through this program will be used to enhance environmental learning opportunities for staff and students and expand on energy conservation efforts in our building. For more information, please contact the SCDSB Environmental Systems Coordinator, Jessica Kukac at 705-734-6363 extension 11514.</span></p>
