Teachers: the CUPE WTR Phase 2 sanctions covering our EA's, ECE's and Instructors are posted below for your easy reference. In order for the WTR to work, we need to be aware of and support our education support workers everyday at school. This will be especially important in smaller schools. Also in those with a hostile admin team, or even indifferent teachers, who might otherwise ignore these sanctions out of ignorance or for their own convenience sake. Regretfully, we know it does unfortunately happen .... Please see below.
It's amazing how many of our CUPE education support worker duties are voluntary and dependent on the personal whim of admin, and even the teaching staff in our schools. CUPE clearly has their work cut out for them in their contract negotiations. Proper, complete job descriptions? Health and Safety procedures?? Protocols???
It is very important that teachers each take the lead in supporting the CUPE members at their school. Be a part of the solution rather than contribute to the problem. We would expect no less for ourselves as teachers!
