|EMSB CANCELS ALL CLASSES FOR NOVEMBER 21st|
MONTREAL, NOVEMBER 15, 2005- In view of the legal strike action being taken by support staff workers on Monday, November 21, the English Montreal School Board (EMSB) has announced that all classes in the youth and adult sectors will be cancelled for that day. Earlier this week, plans had called for only the elementary schools to be closed.
EMSB Director General Antonio Lacroce stated that the change was deemed necessary in light of the fact union members intend to picket in front of schools. Monday will therefore be declared a board-wide professional day. Previously scheduled professional days remain in force this Thursday and Friday, November 17 and 18.
