Toronto Public Library Workers Stand in Solidarity with York Catholic Schoolboard Library Workers!

Home / Blog / Toronto Public Library Workers Stand in Solidarity with York Catholic Schoolboard Library Workers!

As classes resume this year across Ontario, York Catholic District School Board has laid off approximately 30 library technicians – the only board in the GTA to do so. This decision was made as a result of their plans to restrict students from accessing Libraries and their physical resources.

Library techs are vital to students’ education and to the school community. They provide a variety of tech related support, tracking and maintenance for staff and students. This is on top of other work that needs to be done in schools because of COVID-19.

Tell YCDSB trustees that you want to see the layoffs rescinded and the Library techs brought back to work.  Sign and share the petition HERE.
