Teachers dispute opinion piece did not get the facts straight

BCTF executives are not collecting pay cheques during strike

The opinion piece that you printed today (Wednesday’s edition) needed to be fact-checked.  No union leader in the BCTF, local or the provincial EC, is getting paid while teachers are on strike. You may confirm that I am not drawing pay with Kevin Patrick, Secretary Treasurer of SD72. You may confirm that the BCTF EC is not being paid with the BCTF Treasurer.
