PIMP My Union

With nearly 100% of the public contracts now negotiated, it appears all is well in the Province...or is it?

The head of the The British Columbia Teachers' Federation (BCTF) - Jinny Simms - is holding out on their contracts - even going so far as to hold a "strike vote" in the coming weeks for a September walkout claiming the Government will not yield to "class size and composition" modifications.

With 86% of classes having fewer than 30 students; 56% having less then 26 students; and 20% of class with 20 students or less, the "class size argument" does not seem to make sense.

"Yes, we are holding out on the contracts", our BCTF contact confirmed. "But it is ONLY about class size and composition...the class size of Jinny's new Mercedes and the composition of the cash in her bank account...word!"

Surely, Jinny was talking about the number of students in a class room and the composition of learning abilities and not just personal gains.

Our source (pictured with Jinny) scoffed, "Why bother, yo? Jinny ain't no teacher no more. She gots to get paid...and she only gets paid by her ho's, er, teachers bringing in mo' money through bigger paychecks."

With other big unions such as the BCGEU and HEU able to settle their contracts before March 31st and gain up-to $4,000 per member as a signing bonus, why is it the BCTF not willing to negotiate as efficiently?

"Yo...those other unions are punks.", our source continued while waving his arms in the air - waving them in a manner indicating he just does not care. "Sure, they settled their contracts but did they keep kids out of da classroom? No. Did they inconvience familes? No. Did they score big class SL600 Mercedes? No way! It's hard out here for a pimp...and a union leader."

Sims better settle or she is going to have a lot of teachers upset that they are the only union to miss the big bonus!

Jinny is singing a new tune now. My bet? - They settle. If she doesn't, she will be the first BCTF leader voted out.

Jinny is in a tough spot 53 Union settled before her and now the BCTF is left. She will have a revolt on her hands if they don't get the bonus $4,000.00 by meeting the deadline.

Jinny could be joining Carol looking for work very soon.

Jinny has LOST IT. The teachers won't get a dime and watch how fast a rump group starts a new union to represent them. Too bad for teachers that they never learned to be independant thinkers and just follow her like sheep.

It was a lie in round one, and it's a lie now. Teachers are so well paid it hurts, have more vacation time than anyone, have fantastic working conditions and benefits, full government pensions and there are NO class size problems! What a bunch of whiners.

Did you see the story in the Province yesterday? The entry-level clerk position to work for the BCTF starts at $80,000.00 and goes to $99,112! No wonder Jinny needs more cash for the union. To top it off - They get $500 a year for Viagra!
And they have 140 clerks working there. What the hell does 140 people do all day?
Could it be they do the NDP’s dirty work? Nah, can't be. They must keep busy registering all the new teachers.
Teachers start at $37,000 a year and then have to pay $1500 in dues to Jinny to keep the 140 staffers employed at $80 - $99,000
Holy cow.
Hush money you say?
Makes you wonder what they really do.
Are teachers comfortable funding this?

I can't believe they are the only union going to miss the $4000.00 signing bonus. Jinny has to go.

The renegade BCTF and its overly fat paid Union Administrators must be removed from the Education scene.

Clearly, clearly the rest of the Unions must be embarrassed!

Mercedes 600SL for Jinny; mini-meetings in the Carribien, my gawd, The BCTF rank right up there with the best of the 'scam' artists!
