Our last contract was supposed to end on June 30, 2002.  During the Spring of 2002, the teacher group agreed to extend the contract for an additional year (to June 30, 2003) to supposedly allow the government to devote its full energies to resolve the salary equity issue, which had been dragging on for years.
 
A year later, June 30, 2003 arrived, with no settlement on salary equity, and we started the 2003-2004 school year with no contract.  We worked the entire year with no new contract and no resolution of the salary equity dossier.
 
September 2004 arrived with no new contract and no resolution of the salary equity issue, and so were started our 2004-2005 school year the same way as we started the 2003-2004 one.  We ended up working another full year with no new contract. 
 
It is now late October, 2005.  We are now almost two months into yet another school year with no new contract.  At this point, we are optimistic that a settlement is near, but it will be interesting to see how much, if anything, in the new contract will come into effect before September, 2006!

Four years with the previous expired contract. 
This is disgraceful.  
Is it any wonder that teachers are upset?   

We are told over and over that there is no more money for education, 
 
This attitude just has to change. 
 
Our society simply cannot afford not to spend more money!

Education is the most important investment of any society that is concerned about its future.
