First Day On The Job For New Teachers’ Union President
It’s the first day on the job for the new president of the Nova Scotia Teachers Union.
Bedford teacher Paul Wozney took 58 per cent of the vote in a runoff election with one other candidate in June.
Wozney takes over from Liette Doucet who was eliminated in the first vote with five candidates on the ballot.
At the time, Wozney said the union has some work to do to re-establish its credibility as an advocate for education.
Doucet’s time as president was marked by labour unrest with teachers voting to reject three tentative contracts and carrying out a work-to-rule campaign.
