As a classroom teacher for ten years and an Executive Officer for six, I know that “Building Better Schools” isn’t just an ETFO slogan.
It’s our clarion call for action for just and equitable schools, and our passion to see real victories on issues like: more supports in special education, smaller class sizes, and fixes to health and safety concerns, and the crisis in unfilled vacancies this year.
We are the largest teacher local in Canada. We have the power to get these wins and lead the way to the strongest public education system possible for our students.
Organizing is the key. I’ve worked with teachers to have hundreds of one-on-one conversations, and organized trainings on taking direct action on issues in our schools.
Our 5000 signature strong Kindergarten petition lead to victories on key demands. Now, we are pushing for the same with our campaign to fix the broken education funding formula.
I’m excited to continue working with ETT members and our Executive Team to build a high participation union and, in alliances with parents and community, to win in on-going campaigns and at the bargaining table in 2019. I ask for your support.
Re-Elect Helen Victoros, ETT Executive
