The Kootenay Lake School District has been served strike notice by its CUPE workers who have plans to picket in front of Hume school Monday.

Strike activity will be limited to one-day overtime bans, 30-minute study sessions during breaks and picketing when classes are out and no extracurricular activities are occurring.

Superintendent Jeff Jones says at this time, it doesn’t appear job action will continue beyond June 10.

“We have received confirmation that there is no contemplation of a full withdrawal of services by unionized support staff in June,” he says.

Intended strike activity will not cause any problems for the welfare of students are residents according to CUPE. Also, there will be no interference with access to schools and offices for students and staff.

Pickets in front of Hume Elementary School will start at 4 p.m.

Any employee in the district who is not management or a member of the Kootenay Lake Teachers Federation is a CUPE member.
