Ronald will make an excellent MLA for people in the riding. He has been standing up for people when it comes to health care including mental health and long term care. He is a great activist in the community and is now stepping up because he will make a difference for the community. Ronald’s integrity, honesty and credibility shine through in all he does.

Attention CUPE 5050 members
I know you are all waiting for the results of the vote and I thank you for your patience, but there is a process that must be followed.
We spent the day counting, and checking the number of votes and the number of eligible voters according to the Trade Union Act and unfortunately there appears to be some discrepancies in the lists we have.
Therefore we will meet with the employer on Monday to discuss this. Please keep an eye on our website for a further update.
Again thanks for your patience, I know it seems like another setback but it has to be done right and that’s what we are striving to do.
Attention CUPE 5050 TA classification
If you are a Teacher’s Assistant that was hired by the board because you had ECE qualifications (which at one time was accepted by the employer) this is no longer the case.
So if this applies to you and you are applying for an ECE position and at some point you would like to return to a TA position you would need to have TA qualifications. Just a word of caution, the employer will follow the contract language and look at your experience etc but will not guarantee one way or the other that you will be successful in acquiring a TA position.
If you require further clarification you can contact me.
Attention CUPE staff anyone with ECE qualifications that want to apply for ECE and Lead ECE jobs you need to be Government certified, to do this go to this website and follow the information provided to you, this should be done as soon as possible.

CUPE looks for a voice in the Avis Glaze Review Process
Education System Administrative Review Public Survey
Nova Scotia is undertaking an Education System Administrative Review to improve the education system with the success of students at the centre.
An independent consultant, Dr. Avis Glaze, was hired by the province to review the administrative and governance system that supports our students, schools, teachers, parents, and community. That means looking at the people, processes, and structures in place to make the decisions that impact the classrooms in your community.
Please take a moment to complete this short questionnaire. Your answers will provide valuable information as part of Dr. Glaze’s review. All responses will be submitted directly to Dr. Glaze.
The opportunity to provide feedback will close on Friday, November 3.
Fill out our online survey to share your thoughts.
