When they state in a press release about settling a pay round they state that they are pleased a settlement has been reached because:
“PPTA will now be able to focus its energies on fighting the government’s agenda of undermining the New Zealand’s public education system.”
So they won’t be campaigning for better teachers or teaching, or wanting to sort out the proliferation of dodgy teachers appearing in court for interfering with kids…not they want to devote their time to but fighting the Government.
I think we all know that the PPTA are part of the problem not part of the solution.
The PPTA should be deregistered as a union, they have become a political lobbying organisation.
