Well! If I can’t have that much, I want more.

May 19, 2011

Last we heard, Saskatchewan teachers asked for a 12% raise in a one year contract and the province offered 5.5% over three years.  Typically, in negotiating, the two sides move towards the middle.  Not so much this time.

Now the teachers are asking for more.  Seriously.

Get ready for another strike.  My guess is that it will happen after the long weekend because no one would choose to miss a paid holiday.

I do hope that the teachers agree to the government’s request to not prevent seniors from graduating on time.  Surely they could treat any grade 12 teachers as “essential services”.
