To Chairperson Dixon, Superintendent Sheppard, Trustees and Staff,
Thank you for the opportunity to send this presentation in on behalf of CUPE Local 1091, Delta Schools Support Workers. My apologies for not being able to make this presentation to you in person.
Over the nearly 40 years that I have worked in this district I have seen firsthand how, time and time again, budget cuts and changes have affected the members of my Local. These are hardworking, dedicated, and loyal employees. They earn some of the lowest wages in this district, yet provide some of the most essential and critical services needed for students and staff to be successful. Yet every year and every budget these are the jobs that are always on the chopping block.
Please download the attached documents for details on a challenge for members who are volunteering for any NDP campaign.
