School employers seek to force BCTF members to volunteer

This is kind of amazing – the BC Public Schools Employers’ Association (the arms-length thing the government created to manage negotiations with the BCTF) is going to the LRB to try to have the withdrawal by teachers from voluntary activities declared illegal.

Uhh, what? So the BC government thinks that not volunteering is illegal? What’s next, mandatory volunteering at work?

The application states argues that withdrawing from voluntary activity is unlawful. Well played, BC government. Mandatory, forced voluntarism. Freedom reigns.
