As your Executive Officer I will continue to collaborate and communicate directly with members through frequent school visits, prompt responses to emails and phone calls, and by working directly with members on ETT/ETFO committees. I will encourage member engagement through my work with our social committee and at general meetings.
I will communicate, and discuss, current issues regarding political action, health & safety, fixing the funding formula and collective bargaining, while concentrating on specific issues [ie FDK] raised by the members. I will specifically challenge increased teacher workload, large classes, intimidation of members, poor funding, lack of support associated with classroom violence and strips to our contract.
While advocating for members, and diligently enforcing our collective agreement, I will work with the ETT Executive, ETFO, Social Justice Organizations and other Unions. Together, we will protect the rights and dignity of individual members and advocate for positive, equitable, healthy working conditions. I welcome feedback from members and will communicate all issues and opinions to the Executive.
My 30 year commitment to ETT as a Steward [26 years] and Regional Councilor [8 years] provides you with an experienced choice. I respectfully request your vote.
Best Regards, Colin Strange
