All Future Shop stores across Canada, including the one here in Belleville, have closed effective immediately.

The news was delivered simultaneously to employees across the country early Saturday morning as they were showing up for their shifts.

A select few outlets will be converted into Best Buy stores, but the rest will remain closed for good.

A company spokesman says 500 full-time and 1,000 part-times jobs will be lost. Between 30 and 40 people worked at the Belleville location.

Future Shop’s website is now unavailable.

Loyalist College president Maureen Piercy says the news of the upcoming layoffs at the college is distressing and they are working with the 18 affected staff members to support them in any way possible.

Yesterday, it was announced the changes to staffing and programming will come due to a $4 million financial shortfall for the 2015-16 year.

The majority of the changes will come because the closure of Loyalist Certification Services, an exam and certificate centre trades and other jobs under the Loyalist umbrella.

Piercy says, in the past, it had been very successful and proving a net profit and good support for core business.

Maureen Piercy

As part of those cuts, seven support staff and two administration staffing positions will be lost.

Also part of the strategy, Loyalist will not be accepting new students for three programs – advertising and marketing communications, broadcast engineering technology, and graphic design.

Piercy says the College is communicating with the students who may have applied to those programs in the fall to let them know of any other options whether at Loyalist or elsewhere.

Students who are currently enrolled those programs will have the opportunity to complete them with the current faculty at the college.

The notice sent to staff added that other adjustments will be made to positions in low enrollment programs.

There will be changes through attrition and restructuring as well.

The college’s business plan for 2015-16 will be presented to the board in June.


Prince Edward County council fires CAO

Prince Edward County’s Chief Administrative Officer was fired Friday afternoon.

At a special meeting, it was announced County council and Chief Administrative Officer Merlin J. Dewing, came to an agreement that will result in his immediate departure from the role he has held since November 2011.

Council has agreed with Dewing that his leadership approach no longer aligns with the vision the current council has for the County of Prince Edward.

As a result, council approved ending Dewing’s term as CAO, in accordance with the early termination clause of his contract.

Mayor of the County of Prince Edward, Robert Quaiff.

Mayor Robert Quaiff 1

The Chief Administrative officer is appointed under the municipal act and is the most senior administrative person of the management team responsible for managing day-to-day business operations for the municipality.

In a press statement the County says, “during Dewing’s three and a half years as CAO, he led the Municipality through a substantial service delivery review and corporate realignment process, streamlining Municipal departments and realizing annual savings upward of $1.1 million in wages and benefits. Dedicated to enhancing customer service at the County, Dewing was committed to improving the efficiency and effectiveness of all County practices and procedures. He also invested significantly in employee development and recognition, initiating the Municipality’s award-winning Career Development Program with the goal of improving employee attraction and retention. County council remains committed to working with one another and County staff as they move forward with the goal of improving employee attraction and retention.”

Mayor Quaiff says he is not at liberty to expose the terms and conditions of the package that was agreed upon mutually by Dewing and council as it is a Human Resources issue and will remain in strict confidence.

Council has appointed James Hepburn, Director of Finance, as acting CAO allowing Municipal operations and projects to move forward while Council determines their preferred approach to fill the CAO position.

Mayor Robert Quaiff 2

Mayor Quaiff says they do not believe that the Dewing’s dismissal will have any effect on the current projects he has been working on at this time.
