Webinar: Unionism and collective representation
Unionism and collective representation in the post-pandemic period: possible avenues
Free webinar | 90-minutes (including a 10 min Q&A)
The pandemic has highlighted the importance of the teaching profession in Canada. While we have seen public appreciation of the teaching profession and school staff rise significantly, the same appreciation has not been shown by many governments.
Educators’ demands for appropriate health measures in schools have not always been met with a favourable response. And there is no guarantee that public appreciation for education professionals will lead to improved governmental relations. This Podium talk proposes three possible directions as we move toward crisis recovery:
- Status quo
- A renewed confrontational and coercive approach
- Efforts to foster a more collaborative approach to issues affecting the teaching profession and the future of publicly funded public education
Join us for our free webinar, part of our new Podium series offered to CTF/FCE Member and Associate Organizations and select partners. Register by March 4, 2022.
