Website launched to support teachers during the strike

Meanwhile, Premier Christy Clark has said teachers are demanding twice what other public sector unions have settled for, while neither side have budged on the demand for a $5,000 signing bonus.

However, as CKNW’s Shelby Thom reports, one North Vancouver mother, Kate Milberry has launched a website called “Families Funding Teachers” to help parents re-gift the $40.00 a day childcare subsidy, which she calls “bribe money,” to the teachers’ union.

“When you click the big green donate button to the right of the web page, you’ll see it links you directly to the BCTF PayPal account,” Milberry said. “The creators of the website never see the money, they have no control over it; it goes directly to the BCTF.”

Milberry goes on to say the government is trying to “impoverish” teachers to break the union, and therefore, teachers should be compensated while on the picket line.

Premier Clark recently addressed the dispute, saying teachers must end the strike while the two sides negotiate, and the union must alter and introduce a reasonable proposal at the bargaining table.

Union President, Jim Iker says the government have been unwilling to engage in bargaining talk and has not made any proposals despite the union’s concessions.
