Teachers need our support

Teachers have been facing a lot of resistence in their contract negotiations in provinces across Canada. Right now, in Ontario, elementary teachers are being threatened with their pay being docked if they continue to work to rule . Working to rule is now being noticed by the school community because the extra work teachers take on makes the school a better place.  As the negotiations heat up, there will be a lot of misinformation about teachers that will be bandied about.

After watching another winter come and go on the picket line, striking workers at Crown Holdings Inc. are appealing to the Ontario government to help them reach a fair resolution in their 21-month long strike.

"The strike has been very difficult for all of us. A lot of people have had to make deals with the bank to try to keep their homes, try to keep their kids going to school," said striking Crown worker Steve McHugh. "We really need the government to step up and protect workers rights here in Ontario."
