The Catholic school board is prepared to close all schools in the event a deal is not reached between the province and CUPE and strike action occurs. The Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE), which has been without a contract since Aug. 31, is in a legal strike position as of Thursday (Nov. 3). Strike actions can include a partial or full withdrawal of service which could impact the safety of staff and students. “We are very concerned about the possibility of labour disruption and know that parents/guardians share that concern,” stated Peterborough Victoria Northumberland and Clarington Catholic District School Board communications manager Galen Eagle. The Peterborough Victoria Northumberland and Clarington Catholic District School Board employs about 800 CUPE members, representing support staff such as custodians, maintenance staff, secretaries, educational assistants, early childhood educators, learning commons specialists, paraprofessionals and central IT employees among others.
AUCKLAND, New Zealand (AP) — Captain Sarah Hunter became the most-capped female player in test history Sunday, winning her 138th cap in England’s 41-5 quarterfinal win over Australia at the Women’s Rugby World Cup. To celebrate, Hunter scored the opening try of a rain-drenched match in which England’s forward power and precision in marginal conditions was critical. England’s second try in the 30th minute came from a lineout drive following a penalty. England immediately secured the ball at the back, it’s drive was powerful and Packer scored her first.

With her tenth studio album “Midnights,” Swift rifles through the pages of her personal life like a scrapbook, giggling at inside jokes and revelling in the creative choices that propelled her to stardom over a decade ago. In 13 tracks, “Midnights” explores the no-man’s-land between the glitter of a budding romance and the grime of a life shaped by speculation. Sonically, Swift’s revisited production elements which on previous records felt inauthentic to her songwriting — here, they’re right at home. In short, “Midnights” might be the best album of Swift’s discography. “Midnights” is Swift at her coolest and most confident, and she’s without a doubt grown up since the country-pop battle cries which framed her early work.1 month ago Peterborough Examiner
To stem the tide, the federal government announced last June it would ban six single-use plastic items as a step toward achieving zero plastic waste by 2030. “A lot of conversations around removing single-use plastics entirely marginalizes a whole group of people who end up being under-represented,” she says. Clear labelling would make it easier to ensure compostable single-use products get disposed of correctly. “But it loops bioplastics and biopolymers into the same category as single-use plastics.

About half the state’s voters say the economy and jobs are the most important issue facing the country, according to the survey. And among that group of voters, Oz had a lead over Fetterman. More voters say they are not confident Oz is familiar enough with Pennsylvania to serve effectively as senator than those who expressed confidence, according to the poll. Oz also challenged Fetterman over whether he had been honest about the effects of the stroke and pressed Fetterman to release his medical records. ___This story has been corrected to show that all polls in Luzerne County were ordered to stay open until 10 p.m., instead of several allowed to stay open.24 days ago Peterborough Examiner
