Moncton: The union representing more than 3,300 education support staff across New Brunswick is giving the thumbs up to the Minister of Education’s plans for a new Moncton High School.
CUPE Local 2745 President Sandy Harding says, “We think Minister Carr’s plan is well thought out and the best option available. CUPE members who work at Moncton High will be active and engaged in the process of bringing this new school to reality.
“They will hold high standards for health & safety and will make sure they have a healthy and safe workplace upon their return to Moncton High in the fall,” she says.
Says Harding, “We are willing to give Minister Carr’s plan a chance and will actively participate in the Transition Committee,” she has also announced.
“We are particularly happy to hear that this will be a publicly built school and that the Minister has not been lured into a P3, or so-called ‘public private partnership’ which would be a bad deal for New Brunswick taxpayers,” says Harding.
