The Teachers Win The Pennant!


The Teachers Win The Pennant!

Money for wages......Money for classroom conditions......mechanism for dealing with class size.

That's it.

That's the crux of the Ready Ruling.

So, for all those who said the Teachers couldn't win.....Ha!

And for all those who said Ms. Sims was crazy.....Ha!

And, just like it has always been before, and always will be in the future, it has everything to do with folks sticking together and taking a stand.

And for all those that say that teachers don't deserve it because people working at Big Box Union Busting Stores make nothing and have no benefits, just think about what you are actually saying.

And for all those Astroturf groups that played the role of the sycophant and unquestioningly pushed the Government's Talking Points - for shame!

This is the first time in a long time that I've felt like the race to the bottom has been halted.

And no matter what they do - relent, or have the commander dress up in full IronLady drag so that they can redouble their efforts to hammer the BCTF down if Madame Justice Brown gives them a favorable decision tomorrow - GordCo is doomed.

Because all of British Columbia's labour groups, including the Crown Prosecutors who said they won't prosecute the Teachers because they themselves have been screwed by a government that ignores legally binding arbitration rulings, have been shown how to win again.

Thanks to Kaybertoss for the original link source to the WX story; apparently NW took the night off to celebrate Larschied and Shorthouse's 50/50 win.
And, oh ya, before I forget
- Happy Birthday Tommy Douglas!
