Liberals have created chaos in education

TORONTO - I can hear the phone call in my wildest imagination.

“Hello, boss, feeling a bit under the weather today. Don’t think I can make it into work today,”

There’s a pause.

“Sure, Chris. No problem. Take 11 days on full pay. When that’s finished, you can take another 120 days at 90%. Then just keep coming back for more.”

As I said, in my wildest dreams.

It doesn’t happen like that in the private sector, where insurance companies usually take over paying for short and long-term absences after the first 10 days or so of sick leave.

In the recently negotiated tentative agreement with Elementary Teachers’ Federation of Ontario (ETFO) a never-ending sick leave entitlement has been referred to arbitration. It was the stumbling block in the talks and moving it to arbitration means the government capitulated. Most arbitrations side with the union.  (more...)
