With a one-day strike by English high school teachers, and support staff from French Catholic and French public boards on Jan. 15, Greater Sudbury Police are warning drivers of possible traffic disruptions.

GSPS said picket sites by striking teachers include, but are not limited to, Chelmsford Valley District Composite School, Confederation Secondary School, Lasalle Secondary School, Lively District Secondary School, Lockerby Composite School, Lo-Ellen Park Secondary School, Sudbury 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 p.m., police said. 

Drivers may find they are delayed for a short period of time, GSPS said.

“This matter is a civil matter as it is a provincial labour dispute,” police said. “Please do not contact police regarding the delays unless there is an emergency.”
