One-day strike for better wages
First Posted: May 5, 2011 3:08pm
It's a day for Saskatchewan teachers to support each other's quest for better wages as thousands of Saskatoon educators gather at the Prairieland Park building for a rally and study session. "We've been learning about bargaining negotiations," said Annette, a teacher taking part in Thursday's walk out. She thinks it's important for teachers to come together during a time like this. "The mood is that there is strength in numbers and we feel supported amongst each other," said Annette. Priscilla is another teacher who describes the study day as a time to learn, and to bond. "It's emotional; it's very emotional because we all have the same goals." Both women believe teachers deserve better wages because of their commitments inside and outside the classroom, and hope the one-day strike will make it apparent to the government.
