CUPE Press Release – 2018-01-24

Liberal government throws education sector into chaos

That is the title of this press release from CUPE concerning the NS Government’s intent to amalgamate all seven English School Boards into a single unit. Details are sparse.

We should be concerned that this might affect our collective bargaining process even more that it does now. Could this be a pre-cursor to having just a single Collective Agreement between the various CUPE locals and this new ‘Super Board’, instead of each Region being able to negotiate separate CA’s.

CUPE National, CUPE Nova Scotia and the each Local Executive will be consulting on the best way to approach this and ensure that members rights are maintained.
