Teachers union giving bad advice

I feel bad for our local teachers who do a great job and are highly respected in our community.

I feel bad for our local teachers who do a great job and are highly respected in our community.

You are simply getting bad advice and your union executive is taking the wrong approach to dealing with government.You can’t win this battle.The premier is at the top of her game. She has a majority in the legislature which she pulled out of an almost certain defeat.

Christy Clarke has drawn the proverbial line in the sand. You cannot win butting heads with her. Even the students that you purport to be fighting for are turning against you.

Your executive has to find a way to work with the ministry. You will come out much farther ahead.

This is an issue that crosses all cultural boundaries and affects the whole population of B.C.

If your executive were to offer a carrot instead of the stick, what benefits do you think might appear down the road?

Teachers must elect an executive that uses more common sense and less ideology.
