Wynne Juices Catholic Teachers Wages For Justin #elxn42

Liberals give Catholic teachers wage boost, too

I’m starting to think Premier Kathleen Wynne was happy to invent a crisis with the province’s teachers, only to swoop in days before school starts with an excuse to give them everything they want under the pretext of buying labour peace.

There’s that and buying Justin votes…

  • David Murrell

    According to official Elections Canada records, the Ontario English Catholic Teachers Association donated $9,975 to the Ontario Liberal party. Of course, there is no evidence, no evidence at all, that this union receives high pay raises from the Kathleen Wynne government in return. Why do I say this? Well, there has been no news on this financial relationship from CTV News, CBC News, the Toronto Star or the Globe and Mail. Nope. Nosiree. No news at all. So all his wondrously happy on the collective bargaining front. We should all be happy.

      $6,550 to get $500 million in pay raises? teachers are smarter than i thought. heck of a ROI

      • David Murrell

        Well, this is the Kathleen Wynne economy. Some — particularly in the public and green energy sectors — do in fact receive a good return on their dinero negro (bribe money) investments.

        • mauser 98

          yes an inverse proportional universe
          teachers privately must give a big chunk

      • WalterBannon

        $6,550 plus pro govt tv ad campaigns and votes during elections

        The value of keeping their ass on the gravy train is worth 500 million of other peoples money to the crooked liberals

      Aside from the rather paltry corporate donations (OECTA, etc.) which is probably just the tip of the iceberg, I can’t help but wonder how many individuals contribute to the individual Liberal candidates or their riding associations up to their allowable legal limit. And let’s not forget the endless tit for tat going on here. After all, it was Kathleen who “deliverred” the teachers to McGuinty back i 2003 (she was a lowly trustee back then). She won the Don Valley West seat and was awarded the position of parliamentary assistant to the Minister of Training, Colleges and Universitis. The bitch was on her way.

      Just a thought, David, but perhaps a more fruitful line of research may be a comparative study of the finances of Liberal riding associations and/or individual candidates.

    • Correction: the teachers’ mafia stole union dues to do so (I use the word “mafia” deliberately).

      There are teachers who have no business being in a classroom and only do so because nepotism/favouritism has let them in a lucrative position. Then there are teachers who see Wynne for the wicked b!#ch that she is.

      Abolish teachers’ unions and watch the mafia and the Liberals crumble.

      • Clausewitz

        At least restrict the Union to collective bargaining only. I’ve let it been known at the yearly meeting that we should not be taking union dues and using them for political purposes. The Union exec’s do not speak for me when it come to politics. Dam, where’d all those crickets come from.

        • This is why they fear union transparency bills.

          Not like teachers’ giving money to the Liberals is a big secret.

          • Clausewitz

            May not be a secret, but it still doesn’t mean a lot of us condone it. Sadly teachers college’s like OISE, Trent, and York are constantly turning out little brainwashed social justice warriors.

          • The system will implode on itself. Just watch.

  • favill

    I’m truly wondering how people with university degrees cannot understand that any pay increases they “win” is from borrowed money. Do they really think it’s not going to affect them, their kids, their grandkids, etc?

    • WalterBannon

      none of these people have real STEM degrees, they have basket weaving degrees in “gay pedophilia grooming appreciation” or “insane feminist advocacy prose” or some other socially useful subject like that

    • They don’t care.

      • Clausewitz

        Some of us care, sadly many only see schools as a means to a paycheck.

        • Indeed.

          Privatise education and one will see only dedicated teachers remain.

  • Mr_bigstuff

    I believe this vindictive bitch is mentally incompetent and she should be removed from office for the good of not only Ontario but the country as a whole- She has no qualifications to run a bake sale let alone a province and is in way over her head- Why is it that nothing can be done? I am running out of money-
