  • BCTF Solidarity Lunch
    • As a show of solidarity and support for what our brothers and sisters in BCTF have endured in recent months, the ETFO-YR Executive sponsored a “Solidarity Lunch” for the Abbotsford District Teachers’ Association (a Local of the BCTF). In December 2014, every teacher in the ADTA had lunch “on us”. ADTA Local President Doug Smuland expressed his thanks to ETFO-YR: “On behalf of the members of the Abbotsford District Teachers’ Association, a Local of the British Columbia Teachers’ Association, I want to thank all of your members for the very generous and well-timed gift that you provided to us. While ADTA members have now returned to their classrooms and resumed teaching, they have not forgotten what has transpired of late in our province. [...] Please be assured though, that the “Solidarity Lunch” that you provided was a brilliant and unique gift, and our members have been forever bolstered as a result of your warmth and thoughtfulness; thank you.”
