Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE) education workers held a rally at the Saskatchewan Legislature Tuesday to call for more education funding, with more than 50 education workers, community members and parents taking part.
"Earlier this year, the government rolled out its back on track budget. It's a disastrous budget and a blatant attack on education," Rob Westfield, an education suport worker and chair of CUPE Saskatchewan's education workers' steering committee, said at the rally.
CUPE represents more than 7,000 workers from both Catholic and public school divisions.
