We are asking our members, to please reach out and share this information to former members/inactive members about REMEDY to let them know the following:

  • Inactive members must verify their bank information and home addresses HAVE NOT changed since they left the Board by February 15, 2018 – these members need to indicate to that this is the case as CUPE 1238 needs to provide this list of inactive members to the employer.
  • Inactive employees who HAVE changes to bank information OR address changes MUST submit their changes to the attention of the payroll department
  • Any changes to address and/or bank information must include an original signature from the former employee, void cheque must be submitted.

Bill 115 Remedy

Please read this important notice regarding the Bill 115 Remedy:

Special Notice Bill 115

Please share this information with anyone you know who may have been employed by the Lambton Kent District School Board between September 1, 2012 and August 31, 2014.

The local has received the verification listing the employer provided to CUPE. It has been randomly checked for verification and does seem accurate, however we encourage members (current and past) to visit the web site and confirm you are in fact on the list.

There will be ads placed in newspapers across the province as well to ensure that all employees are aware of the remedy payment and to verify their name is on the list. 

All CUPE 1238 members are strongly encouraged to attend the next General Membership Meeting (GMM) on Saturday, December 2nd, 2017 at Lambton Kent Composite School in Dresden, ON at 9:30am for more information on the Bill 115 Remedy.
