Trustees' actions upset teachers CALGARY The president of the Alberta Teachers' Asso- ciation has expressed displea- sure with some of the recent actions of the Alberta School Trustees' Association execu- tive. Walter Hughes directed most of his remarks at Harald Gun- derson, president of the ASTA. He talks out of both sides of his mouth and is totally incon- sistent in what he says and what he said Mr. Hughes. "He has party to resolutions directed at our as- sociation while saying, at the same time, that we should be working together." Mr. Hughes said the ASTA president "can say what he likes, but as long as he Is taking aim at the professional organi- zation of Ihe teachers, any talk of co-operation is a shanv" The ATA president was re- ferring particularly to remarks made by Mr. Gunderson on Monday when (he special ses- sion of the ASTA opened in Calgary. At that time, Mr. Gunderson said he was troubled at the amount of effort the ATA seems lo- be putting forth In casting a bad light on trustees in the eyes of the public. Mr. Hughes said he is also beginning lo wonder what pur- pose the provincial trustees1 as- sociation is serving and, in fact, hether it is necessary at all. He said the joint committea of the ASTA and the ATA held their annual meeting in Feb- ruary and the trustees didn't place a single item on the agenda. "The only Items that were discussed were the five or six submitted by the ATA. We agreed lo hold another meeting for which they would provide the agenda items but the meet- ing never came off because the ASTA didn't submit an agen- said Mr. Hughes. Commenting on tlw resolu- tions under discussion at tha ASTA meeting wliich concluded Tuesday in Calgary, Mr. Hughes said, "as a taxpayer, I would have to wonder why they had to bold a meeting at this time. They haven't discussed much that couldn't have waited until their regular meeting in November."
