The 1340 teachers in the jurisdiction of the IS school boards comprising the Southern Alberta School Authorities Association are proposing action that will esult in a callous disregard of the educational needs of some 27,000 students in this area. They are being asked to approve strike action. The recommendation they strike comes from professional union negotiator* They have been advised that the salaries offered them are not compatible with teacher salaries obtained elsewhere. Your trustees do not agree with this! Don't forget, teachers get one raise a year. They receive this because they ar� paid on a grid basis. They receive a stated increase in pay for each year'* service, up to ten years. This comes, regardless of any classroom improve* ment on their part. Following are abbreviated 'grids', showing what SASAA teachers earned last term; what they are offered this term (which is 6.2% increase on the grid; they are asking 9.1%). The last table shows, for comparison sake, what teachers ii� the Lethbridge schools will earn on the basis of their recently settled negotiations.
