TRURO, NOVA SCOTIA--(Marketwired - Jan. 26, 2014) - More than 400 bus drivers, custodians and tradespeople with the Chignecto Central Regional School Board will be on strike as of tomorrow morning, January 27.

CUPE National Representative Betty Jean Sutherland says 433 members of Local 3890 took part in votes at three locations today.
