When they state in a press release about settling a pay round they state that they are pleased a settlement has been reached because:
â€śPPTA will now be able to focus its energies on fighting the governmentâ€™s agenda of undermining the New Zealandâ€™s public education system.”
So they won’t be campaigning forÂ better teachers or teaching, or wanting to sort out theÂ proliferationÂ of dodgy teachers appearing in court forÂ interferingÂ 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.
