COPE issues letter of solidarity to BC Teachers’ Federation

Dear Brother Iker and BCTF Executive,

The Coalition of Progressive Electors (COPE) would like to express its solidarity with the B.C. Teachers’ Federation in your move to begin stage 2 job action, starting on May 26th. We are aware of and celebrate the recent court win that requires a reversal of the stripping of the articles in school district/teacher contracts dealing with class size and composition. We know that these government actions alone resulted in education finance cuts in the hundreds of millions of dollars.
