Will students be reporting for school in September?

Epidemic of this “teachers greed” must stop or students will not be reporting for school in September

To the editor;

Teachers greed is spreading like summer wild fires.

B.C. is not the only province dealing with these greedy teachers.  The last signed teachers contract in Newfoundland expired on August 31, 2012.  The Newfoundland government and the Newfoundland Teachers Federation have been negotiating ever since.  Talks have expired as both sides are too far apart and mediation is out of the question.

The last signed contract in Saskatchewan expired on August 31, 2013.  The Saskatchewan teachers federation has negotiated two contracts with the Saskatchewan government, since then, advising the Saskatchewan teachers to vote yes on the contract proposals.  Both times, the teachers ignored the federation’s request.

The epidemic of this “teachers greed” must stop or students will not be reporting for school in September in B.C., Saskatchewan, and Newfoundland.
