Not anticipating any layoffs


Brandon, MB (CKLQ) - Ten teaching positions have been added to the Brandon School Division in time for the 2017-2018 year.

The division is projecting an enrollment increase of nearly two per cent.

Fortunately Brandon is not anticipating any layoffs, unlike other divisions in the province.

The Manitoba Teachers' Society warned its 15,000 members earlier this week that the Progressive Conservative government policies have led to teacher layoffs and cut salaries.

During budget deliberations last February, the division had budgeted for 14 positions to be added.
