Statement from Liette Doucet about back-to-work legislation

Feb 11, 2017

This evening through a government press release, we found out Premier McNeil intends to impose back-to-work legislation on teachers. This is consistent with the McNeil government’s well documented lack of respect for the collective rights of workers.

Teachers have been taking a stand for better classroom conditions. They are tired of having their concerns ignored. Unfortunately, the government has not been willing to make the needed investments to improve our education system. It’s clear Premier McNeil knows the cost of everything and the value of nothing. A legislated contract will do nothing to improve the state of our schools and will only further erode the trust between teachers and this government.
