From the Campbell River Mirror:
Canadian Taxpayers' Federation B.C. director Sara MacIntyre reports that by late last week more than 600 parents had signed up to join a class-action lawsuit against the B.C. Teachers' Federation. According to lawyer Bruce Hallsor, specific costs incurred by each plaintiff would have to be documented to determine what each one paid as a direct result of the illegal strike.
Given that a $500,000 fine is chump change for this quasi-monopoly union whose members are compelled to join and pay dues, this lawsuit may do its part to level the playing field. More information is available at www.taxpayer.com
