Im not suggesting a conspiracy what I'm suggesting is that teachers (the pension fund) is almost constantly an activist investor. When they bought Bell all the linesmen where made contractors. (a contractor) receives no benefits. They are now teaming up with a US vulture fund literally drain the workers pensions a CP and put in the pockets of the shareholders. Yet somehow whats good for the private sector is not good for the public sector.

If you consider your contract negotations a 'game' i really don't know what to say. I hope you have fun playing.

All thru my child's education i volunteered at the schools, donated computers, went skating etc taking time off a 10 dollar an hour job to do so. In 'inner' city toronto. I think i 'served' my time and earned my stripes.

I'm a self employed IT worker, retraining can be a weekly experience for me, and I enjoy it.

As for your cost of living increase as i said I'm self employed. And as it stands most blue collar worker (like bell techs and CP workers ) have taken a hair cut in the last 20 years.

As a teacher your pension fund controls 3% of TSE. This is an opportunity to push for change of the most positive kind. But don't worry I've never met a teacher who thinks this is correct. Its always up to some other party (that controls 3% of the TSE) to push for positive change.

I hope you and your union have fun playing the 'game'. Your comments really show me how much of a different word you live in.

oh yeah 1 brother a teacher , 1 father a tenured prof so yes i do understand the 'game' . A game played all the way to sunshine list.
