LETTERS TO THE EDITOR ...OPSEU teachers don't care about students

Full Text

Dear editor, It is really too bad that OPSEU (Ontario Public Services Employees Union) college employees who, in general, cannot see the forest for the trees, stand on a platform defending students and class sizes while at the same time stabbing them in the back by holding them and their future hostage. Teachers say they want smaller class sizes and their wage increase, as offered, is okay by them at 12 per cent. Well, as a regular employee of the private sector who has been without a raise for two years that is too bad. All they really want is more money for less work as class sizes are made smaller. OPSEU members do not care about students-- they only care about themselves and how much money they can pocket and force from the students (and their funding parents) through increased tuition prices. And what does the current government do-- nothing! In fact the Ontario government almost did less than that as they could not or would not answer the question of refunds and credits for graduating students. So, Mr. Premier you have allowed a portion of your voting public to be tainted by your obvious lack of interest in the furtherance of education. I hope these people will remember how you treated them on the next election day. To all the parents and supporters who fund their children and grandchildren in the gaining of a higher education they should also remember that both OPSEU and the Liberal Party in Ontario do not care whether your child graduates. Doug S. Galvin, Acton
