Teachers grateful for community support

Dear Editor, The teachers of Ucluelet Elementary, Ucluelet Secondary and Wickanninish Community Schools would like to thank the community for their support during our job action. In particular we would like to thank our CUPE collegues for joining us on the picket/lock-out lines, Christ Community Church for giving us access to their kitchen and washrooms, the children who baked for us, parents who brought treats, and community members international tourists who all supported our cause with great enthusiasm.

Many local businesses have supported us such as: Big Daddy’s Fish Fry, Common Loaf Bakery, Co-op, Far West, Grey Whale Deli, Rhino, Sobo, Solidarity Snacks, Thay Tea, The Whale Centre, Tuff Beans, Ukee Dogs, Vincente Café, Wild Side Grill and Zoe’s Bakery.

The teachers of the West Coast are committed to a fully-funded public education system; which includes contract language addressing class size and composition.
