The Disenfranchised OECTA Teachers' Petition

Reprint: In case you missed it over the weekend, the Disenfranchised OECTA Teachers group has forwarded me the following petition it wants circulated to our members' schools. The text is below. You can find the page at: http://www.facebook.com/DisenfranchisedOntarioEnglishCatholicTeachers/info

We are Ontario English Catholic Teachers seeking to have it recorded that:

1. We are not in agreement with the contract stripping provisions of the Memorandum of Agreement between the Provincial Association and the Provincial Government
2. We have not been allowed to vote to demonstrate our dissatisfaction with the terms of this agreement which have stripped us of hard fought for rights and robbe

d us of hard earned sick days
3. We accept the need for wage restraint and for sharing the burden equitably among teachers.
4. we stand in solidarity with our colleagues in other unions who continue to fight for our rights



Their Facebook page includes a mission statement, and also a response from the Education Minister Laurel Broten. You may visit the page to join in the discussion. Good luck with your grassroots effort. Whether others agree or disagree, you have every democratic right to express your concerns. 



A different kind of pause.......................
