As you are aware, the Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE) announced that its members will take further job action on Monday, October 7, 2019, if a new collective agreement is not reached through negotiations with the province and the Council of Trustees Associations. The new job action will be a full withdrawal of services, which is otherwise known as a strike or a walk-out. Over 18,000 employees will not be at work for the duration of the strike, which is almost half of the Toronto District School Board’s employees. Most of these employees work in schools.

Effective September 3, 2019, student Home Drives (H: Drive) will be replaced with Google Drive File Stream (G: Drive). This will allow students to use their current TDSB Google Drive for all their storage needs. Existing data in the student H: drives will be accessible, but read-only until March Break, 2020 so that students can access and/or move any needed files. New files can only be saved to the G: drive.
