Burrill: NSTU action shows disastrous state of Liberal government relationship with teachers

HALIFAX – NDP Leader Gary Burrill made the following statement about potential job action by the NSTU:

“It is a huge step for the teachers’ union to consider this job action. It demonstrates clearly the depths of their concern over the changes being proposed to our public education system.

This time last year teachers and supporters marched in the streets in support of improvements to our schools. Stephen McNeil and his Liberal government had the opportunity to change course and have instead recommitted to pitting themselves against parents, students, and teachers.”
