The New Brunswick government announced Jul. 10 it will reverse a $2.9 million cut to school districts. The cuts would have cost 300 library assistants, teaching assistants and other education workers their jobs, while hundreds more would have seen their hours reduced.
“This victory is in no small part due to the efforts of CUPE members across New Brunswick’s education sector,” said Paul Moist. “These people have worked tirelessly to force the Liberal government to face facts – that everyone benefits when our kids have the support and services they need at school.”
