Library board approves 2021 draft budgets, hears Town Halloween plan

By Spencer Seymour, Local Journalism Initiative Reporter

The St. Marys Public Library board held their monthly meeting last Thursday and among the most important outcomes was the board’s approval of their 2021 draft budget.

The approved draft budget will now be sent to Town of St. Marys staff to be presented to Town Council for their consideration. The draft budget for the adult learning center was also approved by the library board, which did see more notable changes to the library’s budget. One of these changes was a request for a $1,500 funding increase from Stratford to help cover the costs of expanded adult learning services in the city. Earlier this year, the St. Marys adult learning center increased their presence in Stratford from two days to three days, and have expanded their hours of service, thus prompting the request for more funding. Since funding for the St. Marys adult

Labor Board Accuses Google Contractor of Violating Union Rights

A federal agency issued a complaint this week against a contractor hired by Google and accused it of violating its employees’ labor rights, marking the latest flash point in a long-running struggle between workers and technology companies.

In the complaint, the National Labor Relations Board asserts that HCL America, a subsidiary of an Indian contracting giant, illegally discouraged workers from belonging to a union, and of failing to bargain with the union in good faith.

HCL and Google did not immediately respond to requests for comment. The case does not accuse Google of wrongdoing.

A group of about 90 HCL employees in Pittsburgh who do work such as data analysis under a contract the company has with Google voted to unionize last fall. They affiliated with the United Steelworkers union.

According to the complaint, managers at the company interrogated workers about the organizing activities of their colleagues, told them that

Chicago aldermen advance new members for Northwest Side home equity board

Chicago aldermen on Monday advanced a group of appointees to a Northwest Side taxpayer-funded commission that guarantees home sale prices for members in several bungalow belt neighborhoods, a program that was created decades ago to try to stem white flight.

Some aldermen questioned the policies of the Northwest Home Equity Assurance Program, which has collected more than $10 million in small property tax payments from all homeowners within its boundaries since the late 1980s, but has handed out just a few payments in that time to residents whose houses didn’t sell for a set minimum price.

“People pay into this program via their tax bill, and it has $9.5 million, $10 million sitting in an account,” said Northwest Side Ald. Gilbert Villegas, 36th, who has for years criticized the agency for not doing more with its reserves. “And it has staff. And what we need to do is to

Half of elementary students at Peel public board opted for online learning

Nearly half of students at public elementary schools in a COVID-19 hot spot west of Toronto are learning online, according to data provided by the school board.

Upwards of 54,600 elementary students have opted for remote learning this year at the Peel District School Board, while roughly 57,300 have returned to the classroom — a split far higher than the roughly one-third of elementary students learning from home at neighbouring boards.

The Peel board saw a sharp increase in students opting for remote learning over the course of the last month, according to numbers it shared. In late August, just 35,800 students had registered for online learning, compared to 78,300 who indicated a preference for in-class lessons.

The Catholic school board in the region — the Dufferin-Peel Catholic District School Board — said about 14,150 elementary students are learning online, compared to 32,400 who have returned to the classroom, meaning
