The Disenfranchised OECTA Teacher Petition!


In October I was asked to share this Facebook page by a reader. I am reposting it again in response to your interest in the OECTA Bill of Members Rights. You can visit the link to sign their grassroots petition at the end of the blog. You can also quickly share it through my blogsite using the Facebook and Twitter links on the left side column of my blog page. Here it is again for your consideration:

The Disenfranchised OECTA Facebook page notes:

I've noticed a few groups that have been created on Facebook that represent the Public School Boards across Ontario but have not come across any that allow a voice for the Catholic Teachers to speak about their dissatisfaction with the terms of the agreement that have stripped us from our rights, those teachers who did not have a voice or a vote in the recent legislation. This can be our sound board to show our solidarity with our colleagues in other unions to fight for our rights as a united front. Please feel free to post any information, voice any opinions, and invite other members to finally allow our voices to be heard.

Here is their statement:

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 or demonstrate our dissatisfaction with the terms of this agreement which have stripped us of hard fought for rights and robbed us of our 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 other union colleagues who continue to fight for teacher rights.

Here is a petition link to sign and share:

If you are in agreement with the following statements, please sign your name and school to show your support at: http://www.facebook.com/DisenfranchisedOntarioEnglishCatholicTeachers


[Have you have read the letters I 've posted here from OECTA provincial this week? They claim most of our members support the MOU.  Do you really think that's true? If not, please sign and share the petition link. Enough is enough. In solidarity! David C.]
