On the latest OPSEU Talk, President Warren (Smokey) Thomas talks to two of the forgotten frontline heroes in our public schools: education workers.
Educational Assistant Sandra Cadeau and Child Youth Worker Bonnie Eddy aren’t in the field to get rich – they just want to help their students succeed. But they’re worried that if the government keeps holding “consultations” to dictate instead of listen, all students will suffer, and the province’s literacy and numeracy rates will keep falling.
They’re also worried that if government doesn’t improve contact tracing for education workers across the province, the pandemic will stretch out longer than it needs to.
