Thanks to everyone who took part in the Town Hall call on Thursday, 21 March. For those who weren’t able to call in, I am sending this bulletin as a summary of the points covered.
Locals are welcome to use this bulletin when talking to CUPE members and when reaching out to community organizations, parents’ councils and other allies who can support us in fighting the cuts.
On March 15, 2019 the Minister of Education made an announcement on changes to education and education funding in Ontario. The news focused on changes to class sizes, but buried within the documents that accompanied the announcement were cuts to education funding amounting to more than $282 million.
