Brant Family and Children’s Services’ workers to deliver message to MPP Will Bouma in person after cancelled meeting
The layoffs of 25 workers were announced in March and took effect over the past week.
After originally scheduling a meeting with CUPE 181, Bouma has backed out of the meeting citing the government’s recently announced, province-wide public sector consultations as the appropriate venue to address their concerns, but according to Kirby, “the people in our communities are looking for answers about what is happening here from the people who represent them. These answers will not come from a province-wide consultation. We look forward to delivering our concerns in person.”
What: CUPE 181 members deliver message to MPP Will Bouma
When: Wednesday, April 24, 12:00 p.m.
Where: Will Bouma, MPP Constituency Office, 96 Nelson St., Suite 101, Brantford, ON
Who: Front-line workers of Brant Family and Child Services
Why: To deliver a message to MPP Will Bouma about the impact of these layoffs and the necessity of properly funding the front-line work of Brant FACS
