Nelson-Creston’s Green Party representative is wading in on the bitter teacher-government labour dispute.
Sjeng Derkx is responding to the NDP’s insistence that the Liberal government has this one all wrong.
He says that highlights BC’s dysfunctional political climate.
The Greens want binding arbitration. The NDP supports the BCTF in that stance as well but the government has rejected the idea.
Derkx adds contract bargaining should be done at a local school board level including matters of class size and composition.
