SYDNEY - The cafeteria workers of CUPE 5050 have sent a counter-offer to the Cape Breton-Victoria School Board this morning and have requested a meeting with the chair to discuss the closure of school cafeterias.

The board announced on Friday it would be closing school cafeterias permanently. The members of CUPE 5050 had rejected an offer from the board involving the terms of layoffs and re-training.

Negotiations are ongoing and there will be more information as it becomes available.
