Letters to the Editor

Demands defy logic

Kevin Epp is dismayed at the negative reaction to the “teach only” phase of their job action (recent letters to the editor). Well Kev, I am also dismayed and downright flabbergasted as to why the citizens of this province have to endure repeated disruptions as a result of nonsensical demands of teacher unions. Come on now, a 20 per cent salary increase? Two weeks paid leave to attend someone’s funeral? Give your head a shake! Where is the logic in laying such ridiculous proposals on the table. Is this a new negotiating strategy to gain attention?

If you cannot grasp the concept of zero, nada, zip funds left in the budget, you ought to seek out a new profession. How about a politician? You could then work to reinstate your perceived entitlements and lost rights.
