A message for YMCA of Oakville child care families,
As you may be aware, there have been some new developments in the Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE) job action.
We are actively working with our school board partners, Halton Catholic District School Board and the Halton District School Board, to understand and respond to any potential impacts which might affect our child care operations should CUPE move to full strike action.
We recognize how potentially challenging this could be for our YMCA families. In the event of a full withdrawal of service some of our programs may have to be closed.
While these decisions are beyond the control of the YMCA, we are committed to providing updates as soon as we receive additional information to minimize the impact of this situation on your family.
Thank you in advance for your patience and support as we work through this process.
Each year, YMCAs across Canada celebrate acts of peace by recognizing individuals and groups who, without any special resources, status, wealth or position, have demonstrated a commitment to building peace within their community or communities elsewhere in the world.
During YMCA Peace Week, from November 16-23, local peacemakers will receive special recognition from the YMCA of Oakville, a medallion and a $500 award for their charitable work at the YMCA Community Breakfast for Peace on Wednesday, November 20, 2019.
