NIAGARA FALLS, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Feb. 6, 2014) - In a bid to end the unequal treatment by their employer, school support workers will hold a "Rally for Respect" at the headquarters of District School Board of Niagara (DSBN) in St. Catharines at noon on Friday, February 7.
Workers - who range from school secretaries to ECEs to school custodians - are demanding to know why their employer continues to single them out for inconsistent and arbitrary treatment.
DSBN has arbitrarily implemented sick leave penalties for support staff that are harsher and less generous than those enjoyed by the board's other employees, including principals and teachers.
Media are invited to attend the Rally for Respect, organized by Local 4156 of the Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE), to learn more about the issues affecting District School Board of Niagara and CUPE school support workers.
