I have been telling every teacher I know that they MUST read Justice Griffin’s decision – the whole thing. I have never read a clearer interpretation of the Charter rights that all Canadian workers are entitled to. If ever there was a way to know what our rights are, as well as the limitations of those rights, this is it. Just pour yourself a glass of wine, and sit down and read. And what better forum for you than this humble blog? Here you can fire out comments as you think of them. I really believe this is required reading for all teachers, and anyone who wants to understand what is meant by freedom of lawful assembly, the right to fair negotiation, and the right to strike. You may just be surprised!
