COQUITLAM – CUPE 561 is calling on School District 43 to reverse its decision to cut post-retirement health benefits for all permanent employees who retire from the district after December 31 of this year. CUPE 561 President Dave Ginter says that retirees took some health benefit cuts in 2014 while the district was facing a deficit. The District reported a $13 million surplus in September.
