TORONTO, Ont. – Like the trustees with the Dufferin-Peel Catholic District School Board, support workers with the board want quality education services that help students succeed and an end to program and staff cuts that hamper providing quality services, says Sid Ryan, the Ontario president of the Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE).
Ryan will be taking that message to the new Dufferin-Peel catholic board trustees as part of a CUPE deputation tonight, Tuesday, December 12, 2006 at 7:00.
CUPE represents more than 45,000 school board workers, including more than 1,100 front line staff with the Dufferin-Peel catholic system “who want a better, more stable education system.
“They realize that you can’t achieve that with a flawed provincial funding formula that fuels an endless cycle of program and staff cuts. We want to work in cooperation with boards like Dufferin-Peel catholic — that have held the line on more cuts — to affect positive changes to provincial funding and to students’ education,” says Ryan.
