This morning it was reported that the teachers were instructed to only work bell to bell today.
I wonder how that is different from what they have been doing all year?
Lets face it,they have been refusing those picky little administrative duties like report cards since day one.
Really, how can you take them seriously when they have not been doing their jobs since school started.
A recent Environics poll shows the province to be evenly split. It,is I think is important to note that the teachers commissioned the poll.
When you listen to the radio call in shows,about 90% of the callers want their teacher burned at the stake. Where were these people when Environics called.
I think,the teachers are in for a rude awakening if they vote for a general strike,so is the Labor Board.
The petition for approval for that strike goes before the labor board tonight.According to the Vancouver Sun, the board has already “signaled a strike lasting a few weeks is not a big distraction“.
Cue the Xfiles music in the elevators at the Labor Board.
Unbelievable; a general strike a few short weeks before spring break is no big deal.
Just what the kids need: a few weeks off followed by a few more weeks off!
The only people to benefit from that will be the liquor stores and pot dealers.
The fact that it got to this point is a black mark not only on the teachers but the BC Liberal government as well!
It should have been dealt with back in the fall.The legislature should have been called back to solve this. Any negotiations and legislation should have been done months ago!
Instead, we have been treated to photo-ops and faux throne speeches by the BC Liberal government.
We have had the usual round of ludicrous demands by the union.
Further proof that this government and frankly the teachers are stale and void of creative ideas.
What would you have done?
