Statement from NDP Leader Gary Burrill on teacher job action

November 28, 2016


For immediate release.

HALIFAX – NDP Leader Gary Burrill made the following statement in response to news that teachers will begin work-to-rule on December 5.

“Instead of listening to the concerns teachers have brought to the table, Stephen McNeil has repeatedly shown disrespect towards teachers, parents, and students,” said Burrill. “Teachers are defending the quality of education for our children. The only way to resolve this dispute is for Stephen McNeil and his government to start listening to teachers, parents, and students and propose solutions to improve the working and learning conditions in classrooms.”
