On Wednesday August 14 at 12 noon, stand with us to demand a moratorium on layoffs in the CAS sector. Demand that the Liberals provide the funding necessary and get off the backs of workers who protect the most vulnerable kids and youth in our province.
Facing a budget shortfall of more than $4.6 million this year, the local CAS announced the layoffs of 27 child and youth workers earlier this month. These layoffs would directly affect the services that clients and their families rely on. OPSEU says the job losses could be avoided if the province adopted an alternative "transitional funding" formula.
Join us in London on August 14 outside the CAS at 1680 Oxford Street East at 12 noon. Prevention is protection!
