According to the Syndicat du personnel de l’enseignement des Hautes-Rivières (Teachers’ Union), the current labour shortage in teachers would have also had an impact on the Hauts-Bois de l’Outaouais school board (CSHBO). Last Friday, the Syndicat issued a press release mentioning that the school board has had “no choice but to hire non-qualified teachers in their current circumstances”. The President of the Syndicat du personnel de l’enseignement des Hautes-Rivières, Daniel Boisjoli, gave more details.
According to Daniel Boisjoli, in order to solve this issue, the working conditions for teachers will have to be improved.
The Syndicate also mentions in their press release that the renewal of the collective agreement will begin in the coming months, and that it relies on the school board’s directors to support the teachers’ demands.
