CUPE to hold pancake breakfast for EducationSep 28, 2006 03:21 PM
EDMONTON – Unionized custodial workers at Edmonton’s Public Schools will host a pancake breakfast/demonstration in front of school board offices this Friday.
CUPE 474 President Doug Luellman says the event is to express frustration with the slow pace of contract negotiations between the union and the school board. Luellman says staffing levels are a key issue in the dispute.
“We are asking the school district to set minimum levels of custodial service in our schools,” said Luellman. “This is about making sure schools don’t fall into disrepair in the name of cost cutting.”
