Statement on NSTU Job Action

Wednesday, December 7th, 2016


In light of recent actions taken by the Nova Scotia Teachers Union (NSTU) in response to contract negotiations with the Nova Scotia Government, the StFX Students’ Union wishes to share their support and solidarity with the NSTU.

The StFX Students’ Union represents over 200 students in the education program at the bachelor, masters and doctorate level. As a union, we recognize the important role of Nova Scotia teachers as they foster education in school systems and we recognize their contribution to developing and mentoring student teachers from StFX University.

As education is an essential part of our society, we collectively stand behind the NSTU in their effort to enhance school systems through achieving fair wages, benefits, and improving working and learning conditions. It is important that our graduating students enter an education system that focuses on student learning and improved conditions for all.    

In unity,

The StFX Students' Union
