"For me it's not 'us' or 'it' is a situation, but it has to be a balance," she added

McKercher senses when the anger of students can be understood. There is also a lack of understanding of the position of temporary timers
" Most of the young Canadians do not receive education on labour issues, so they do not understand what trade unions are, what they do and what they do. He must be part of the community class, unfortunately, that's what people don't get. I think the students understand better the position of the teacher if they get an education, " McKercher said
Despite his disappointments, Amiot said that they supported teachers in the strike

" Equal pay for equal work for full timers is a recurring problem. But this time, we're really gonna focus on something. We also want to create a senate for timers. They already have Sheridan, he's not worth anything, but they don't want to talk about it. We also have pensioners who come and ask for life insurance plans through school. This is a hundred percent paid for by a physical person, not at the University of 5 cents. But this is their attitude, " Kennedy said
