General Meeting reminder – Eagle View – Wednesday, January 22nd, 5p.m. – supper served

Hi Folks,

A little reminder of our General Meeting at Eagle View tomorrow at 5 p.m. We will have supper available at the meeting beginning at 4:30.

I have mentioned this is a very important meeting. Glen Hansman, BCTF 1st Vice President will be attending the meeting, and we will be discussing the state of provincial bargaining!

We are facing a difficult situation with provincial bargaining. The government is refusing to agree to any bargaining dates after February 19th. This is after the Legislative session begins and before the budget is introduced.

Our provincial Rep. Assembly will be debating a Bargaining Action Plan on January 31st and February 1st. The action plan addresses a number of actions available to us in the very near future. Shawn Gough and I will be attending the Rep. Assembly in Vancouver. Please attend and make your voice heard.

We will also be electing our additional delegate to the BCTF AGM in March, and a delegate to the CLC convention in Montreal in May.

Hope to see you there..
