CUPE Local 3890 to hold vote on offer from Chignecto-Central Regional School Board

TRURO, NOVA SCOTIA--(Marketwired - Jan. 23, 2014) - The union representing more than 400 bus drivers, custodians and tradespeople with the Chignecto Central Regional School Board says it will hold a vote this Sunday, January 26 on the board's latest offer.

CUPE Local 3890 President Ron Davis says, "We have had a number of our members ask us to present this offer to them and that will take place at a special meeting this Sunday at three locations."

The meetings will be held at:

  • Northumberland Regional High School in Alma at 10:00 am

  • Central Colchester Junior High School in Onslow at 1:00 pm

  • E. B. Chandler Junior High School in Amherst at 4:00 pm

Says Davis, "We are a democratic union and believe that the members of our local must have the final say.

"We will give them the opportunity to decide on Sunday whether this latest language from the Board is enough to satisfy our concerns over contracting out," says Davis.
