Will you oppose attempts from the provincial government to legislate against school staff including cuts to the Local Authorities Pension Plan, or restrictions on their right to strike?

Yes I will oppose legislation against staff, cuts to pensions, and restrictions to strike. I was incredibly disappointed by the motion of the province to take over the teachers pension fund (and note that a better agreement has been reached a few weeks ago, but still not as good as it was before the interference). The right to strike should be protected as a freedom of association within chartered human rights in Canada. There are much better tools to create a vibrant workplace for teachers and support staff than the last resort of legislated restrictions to keep people at work.  Support and empower people and you will see their best.
