The Greater Sudbury Police Service would like to advise the public of possible traffic disruptions on Wednesday, December 4, 2019 at various schools across Greater Sudbury as members of the Ontario Secondary School Teachers’ Federation engage in a full day withdrawal of services.

The picket sites include Chelmsford Valley District Composite School, Confederation Secondary School, Espanola High School, Lasalle Secondary School, Lively District Secondary School, Lockerby Composite School, Lo-Ellen Park Secondary School, Sudbury Secondary School, Manitoulin Secondary School, École secondaire du Sacré-Coeur and École Jean-Paul II.      

Picket lines will be set up at entry points. The picket lines will be in place from 7:30 a.m. until 3:00 p.m. Vehicles attending these locations may be delayed for a short period of time.

The Greater Sudbury Police Service respects everyone’s lawful right to peaceful assembly. This matter is a civil matter as it is a labour dispute. Please do not contact Police regarding the delays unless there is an emergency.

The role of the Greater Sudbury Police Service is to ensure public safety and to keep the peace. Activities may interrupt the normal flow of traffic. Members of the Greater Sudbury Police will be present, working with picketers to ensure the safe and orderly movement of traffic.
