CUPE members meet in Brandon for conference on school issues, amalgamations
BRANDON More than a hundred CUPE members who work in Manitobas schools will meet this weekend, starting Friday, October 26th, at Brandons Keystone Centre to discuss upcoming issues facing the provinces school sector employees.CUPE members know that there are a lot of changes on the horizon for Manitobas school divisions with all the talk about mergers and amalgamations, says Terry Egan, Chair of CUPEs School Division Steering Committee. What we want to talk about is how those changes will potentially affect the important work our members do in our provinces schools.CUPE has about 3,800 members who work as teacher assistants, para-professionals, library technicians, clericals, bus drivers, custodians, and mechanics in Manitobas many school divisions. CUPE Manitoba President Paul Moist says members want to make sure that they have a voice in how any proposed changes are implemented. While our members know that change is a fact of life, they just want what other workers in Manitobas schools want to be treated like the professionals they are and get fair recognition for the work they do which benefits students, Moist says.
