Professor Discusses BC Teacher Supreme Court Ruling Impact for University Education

March 21, 2017

After a legal battle lasting over a decade, the B.C. Teachers' Federation won a landmark case in November 2016 with the Supreme Court of Canada that now allows the union to negotiate class size and composition. 

The ongoing legal battle started in 2002 when the province used legislation to ban teachers the right to bargain class size and composition. With this new decision, the question has been, how will university education for teachers change in the province as a result of this ruling? 

Listen to this radio interview with CBC and SFU Professor Emeritus Milt McClaren discussing the impact and future of this ruling.
