Nova Scotia educators' union asks provincial government to give N95 respirators to all school staff

HALIFAX, NS, January 11, 2022-

CUPE Nova Scotia’s School Board Council of Unions (NSSBCU), representing over 4,600 members at all public schools, is calling on the provincial government to provide properly fitted N-95 masks to all workers in school settings.

“If other provinces can get them for education sector workers, why can’t Nova Scotia?” asks CUPE Nova Scotia President Nan McFadgen. “It’s the same virus in all the provinces, but education workers in Nova Scotia are expected to accept more risk.”
