Re: Classrooms go quiet in SD 62, News, March 7, 2012.
Congratulations to SD 62 secretary treasurer David Lockyer for extending a olive branch to the teachers in his district.
That effort shows the fight is with the B.C. Teachers’ Federation not our hard working teachers.
As a taxpayer I am offended by the remarks of BCTF president Susan Lambert when she says teachers won’t prepare report cards for the entire year as it would undermine their recent strike efforts.
For 30 years I have watched the worst union in Canada try and high-jack the education system in B.C.
I sincerely hope that B.C. teachers hijack the annual meeting of the BCTF in Vancouver from March 17-20 and elect union executives with an open mind and a willingness to represent teachers instead of the union’s own self interests.
Otherwise, the government won’t move forward with any alternative negotiating formats and we will be stuck in the same unproductive ditch we have been in for the last 30 years.
