Why is that not considered part of the “pattern” for settlement?
Trade unions in British Columbia stand united with teachers and support the fight of teachers to get a fair contract including wage increases (B.C. teachers are among the lowest paid in Canada) and class size and composition funding that was removed illegally by the Liberal government in 2002.

I urge you to show up and demonstrate your solidarity with teachers and the fight for quality public education….”(Sinclair)
