Platinum Plated Compensation for BCTF Officials & Staff

My teacher friends in Vancouver have long complained to me about the excessive union dues they have to pay each month. I don't have an exact figure but they're often reported as the highest union dues in Canada.

A scandal is now brewing about the outrageous salaries and benefits packages being paid to staff and officials at their union, the BCTF. Here are some highlights:

  • Admin staff start at $80,000 per year. Yes, that's EIGHTY thousand dollars!
  • After 5 years this salary jumps to over $99,000 per year.
  • Anyone working there can claim up to $500 per year for Viagra.
I've forwarded this information to my teacher friends and am eager to hear what they have to say. These facts all support the notion that we truly have our very own Communist Cabal here in B.C. The next thing we know, the union leader, Jinny Simms, et co will be demanding a special center lane be added to all major roads, on which only Communist Party officials ... errrr BCTF officials will be allowed to drive!

I'd like to see more comments from BC teachers on this matter. Personally, I think the executive wages are outrageous, and an INSULT to teachers "teaching" in the system.
