Some staff members walked out of Mississauga school due to mask concerns
Some teachers and staff members briefly walked out of a Mississauga school due to concerns about their personal protective equipment.
The Dufferin-Peel Catholic District School board confirmed that there was a partial work refusal at St. Joan of Arc Secondary School this morning (Sept. 8).
The board said the brief walkout occurred because some staff members believed they were issued non-medical grade masks.
"We have the proper paperwork certifying they are medical grade and have conveyed this to the union," Bruce E. Campbell, General Manager - Communications & Community Relations, DPCDSB, said in an email to insauga.com.
"In the meantime, we are following proper protocol with regard to work refusals and our Health and Safety and Employee Relations departments are providing direct support to the staff at SJA."
Campbell said all staff members have returned to the building.
