On Nov. 9, members of CUPE Local 1897, support workers in Turtle River School Division held a rally at the administration office in McCreary, Manitoba.

Despite a terrible snow storm, 45 members and parents showed their enthusiasm for the strike as trustees arrived for their regular meeting. They went on strike last Friday.

The main issue is wage parity - the support workers are paid on average 12 per cent less than their counterparts in neighbouring school divisions.
