Nova Scotia school librarians laid-off
In more news from Canada, public school librarians with the Chignecto-Central regional school board in Nova Scotia will be laid-off as of June 30. This move will put 41 librarians out of work, all of whom are represented by the Nova Scotia Government and General Employees Union (NSGEU). The move is the result of budget cuts but came as a surprise to the workers and the union. However, the NSGEU is vowing to fight with the assistance of the Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE).
