School Labour update

Coming off an historic education strike on Friday, where all schools in Ontario were closed, labour challenges continue to percolate, with a touch of faint hope.


Earlier last week, the Ontario English Catholic Teachers' Association announced rotating strikes for this upcoming week, with Holy Name of Jesus in Hornepayne, being slated for a strike on Monday.  However, the mediator has called both sides back to the table, and OECTA have suspended their strikes for this week, pending the outcome of negotiations.  It is possible, that if some progress is made, that the season of labour discontent will see a ray of sunshine.


In relation to the other three teacher unions, ETFO, representing the public elementary teachers, has not announced strike action, but will be making an announcement tomorrow, about increased sanctions to start on Wednesday.


The union representing Francophone teachers has called a province wide strike for Thursday, the Ontario Secondary School Teachers' Federation has announced a rotating strike for next Friday, February 28th, but Algoma District School Board will not be affected, meaning for Hornepayne High School, there will be no disruption to classes for this upcoming week.

This week's news

2020 continues to be a newsworthy year, not yet 2 months into the new year!  Several stories of importance to residents of Hornepayne are transpiring before our very eyes.


1.  School labour strikes continue to bring uncertainty to a new session of the Legislature in Ontario.  This week's labour disruptions are set for Friday, February 21st, as all 4 teacher unions will be staging a one day strike, closing all publicly funded schools in the province.  Stay tuned to www.hornepayne.com for updated information on any strike announcements for next week.   Unions will have to announce, by Thursday, February 20th, any strike action for the following Monday.  All 4 schools in Hornepayne, will be closed on Friday, February 21st, 2020.


2.  In local sports news, HHS Senior Hawks will compete in Marathon on Wednesday, for a chance to win the NSSSAA championship!  JR girls, depending on their results today, may also complete.


3.  Protests over a proposed gas pipeline in BC continue to affect Hornepayne and region, as rail and road blockades are preventing CN Rail and VIA Rail from operating as normal, and there is also the possibility of local trucking disruption too.  As of this morning, there will be a slowdown of highway 17 near Blind River, as local First Nations groups protest, in support of the Wet'suwet'en people.  For a full-fledged background and better understanding issues around the  We'suwet'en nation and its opposition to the pipeline, please refer to your favourite national news website.

Many of us have enjoyed at least one, and in some cases many of Jack Sargent's well known parties.  From live music, to great food, to friendly competition and of course, great friends, many do not realize the charitable benefit of Jack's party.  

However, Jack's party for years has raised money, in particular for Kidsport, and this year was no exception!  Please click the link below, and you will be brought to the news release from Kidsports with all the details!
