Fred sez: OK OK Look! You clean your own blackboard like this ....

NOTES:

Teachers take note! These sanctions will NOT be easy, for anybody, including teachers .....BUT they will require complete teacher co-operation to be effective! 

Nope! Our custodians and maintenance workers will NOT be cleaning your blackboards, unlocking doors when you forget your keys, carrying about photocopy paper and school supplies, sweeping entrances + hallways, doing odd jobs without a work order, replacing light bulbs, doing minor thingies, setting up for staff functions, etc. etc. etc .....UNLESS, [Please see above: they will NEED to nitpick!!!] in some very SPECIFIC case, it poses a definite, official HEALTH + SAFETY RISK!!! 

YE-OUCH! Noooooo .....just because YOU are having a real bad day or are soooo busy or .....or .....or .....Hey! We know -slash- remember what it's like when folks get mad when we NEED to WTR!!! It is NOT EASY, and let's face it, we might get grumpy too .....er .....er sometimes .....like when .....when .....Eh?!?!?! 

No! No! C'mon! You know it's true ..... and CUPE's got some mighty BIG FISH to FRY, so let's not get in the way of their COMPLETE and UNHINDERED success!!!!

Like the button says; our schools work BECAUSE they do, and everybody needs to get with the CUPE WTR program above by showing our colleagues the UTMOST in SOLIDARITY by SUPPORTING their sanctions ALL THE WAY. 

God speed CUPE! Now go kick a little MOE/ OPSBA/ OCSBA butt!!!

In solidarity!
