Thanks to the teachers

Posted on Mon, Jan 23, 2017 at 12:00 PM

Thanks to the teachers for standing up to the government to get a fair pay raise and to stop the government's attacks on the labour movement.

Hopefully the deal negotiated doesn't have any zeroes in it but fills in the first 2 years with at least half a percent raise each while keeping (or making better) the 1% and 1.5% in the 3rd and 4th years.

It may be that there is some room for negotiating on the size of the long service award but public sector workers should have one.

If the wage package does have zeroes in it and/or the long service award has been taken away, I hope that the teachers will vote it down like they did before. Public sector workers deserve to be treated fairly and hopefully the teachers are helping to make that happen. –Person thanking teachers
