Stop education ‘epidemic’

Joe Sawchuk says teachers’ greed is spreading like summer wildfires.

To the Editor,

Teachers’ greed is spreading like summer wildfires. B.C. is not the only province dealing with teacher negotiations.

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, now at 24 months. 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.

Joe Sawchuk,

Duncan
