TORONTO — Today, Stephen Lecce, Minister of Education, issued the following statement on the decision of CUPE to break off talks with the employers, and give notice of intended job action:

"Our government remains focused on keeping kids in the classroom and delivering a deal that gives students and parents predictability and certainty. This will not change.

I urge CUPE and the employers to come back to the table and direct their efforts toward reaching a deal as quickly possible. Our government remains available at any time to restart talks with CUPE and keep students in school. Kids and parents deserve no less."
