CUPE protests job cuts in proposed Peterborough Catholic school board budget

Local members of CUPE protested outside the Peterborough Catholic school board's office Monday night. Union representatives are calling on Peterborough Victoria Northumberland Clarington Catholic District School Board trustees not to adopt its proposed budget, which would eliminate 65 full-time CUPE positions. The school board told Global News Peterborough those positions were supported by funding that is expiring. The board says they will invest $1.6 million in the coming year, to support close to 27 CUPE positions.
