    jennt - Thank you! Yes! That's exactly what teachers are trying to say! But McGuinty and the media all seem to be saying "teachers are greedy - it's all about the money!" but it's NOT. It's about exactly what you talked about - workers have no recourse - they can not use the labour board, or the courts, if they disagree with something. The government, basically, can impose ANY kind of contract they want, and we have NO say in the matter. So yes, it's education workers today. But who's next? By the time our children grow up, will they have ANY rights?

    This is misleading.
    The government sat down (or tried to) with the unions in February and laid out the financial reality of the funding of public ed for this round of contract negotiations. They also said at that point that if the unions chose to collectively bargain with the boards that deals needed to be in place before September 1 because the province would not fund another move on the grid or another 20 days of sick days which cost almost $500 million for this year.

    Bill 115 was introduced into the house in late August when not one local board had ratified contracts with their teachers.

    The ETFO and OSSTF teachers unions had the right to excercise their collective bargaining rights over those 6 months between February and August and they chose not to, even though they knew that they would face imposed contracts.

    It isn't misleading at all. Get your facts straight.
