CCRSB changes name

CCRSB Changes Name

The CCRSB Regional Update of March 29, 2018 states that the ‘Chignecto-Central Regional School Board’ will change it’s name to the ‘Chignecto-Central Regional Centre for Education’ effective April 1, 2018.
The web and social media sites will reflect this change right away but other changes may take time to implement.

Read the CCRSB article – March 29, 2018. – Opens in a new window.

According to our local by-laws:
Section 1 – Name
The name of this Local will be: Canadian Union of Public Employees, Local 3890, Chignecto-Central Regional School Board.

* * *

(Editor comment – If a change is contemplated in our official name, would it be desirable to have a shorter form to work with?)

A suggestion – change that section to read:
Section 1 – Name
The name of this Local will be: Canadian Union of Public Employees, Local 3890, Chignecto-Central Regional Centre for Education.” and for brevity, may also be referred to as: CUPE Local 3890, CCRCE.
