From Our President
Unions exist to serve their membership, and the Mission Teachers’ Union has a long standing tradition of serving it’s members, in a multitude of ways. Over the decades, we have advocated for the interests of teachers and students at every level and intend to do so for as long as we exist. We have done our difficult work as Mission has continued to evolve and grow. Teachers needs are as diverse as the needs of our students, and the MTU has adapted to those needs. We have bargained contracts and strained ourselves mightily to enforce our contract language, we have advocated for the needs of teachers on a case-by-case basis. We have made every effort to make sure that when teachers need to reach out to the MTU, that they get what they need, whenever possible. We feel proud of the service we provide, and public education in Mission wouldn’t be as good as it is without the Mission Teachers’ Union.

Statement of Principles on Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion That the following Statement of Principles on Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion be adopted: The BCTF is a democratic union that recognizes the importance of encouraging and supporting involvement by all members, while recognizing that some members have historically been marginalized. For the Federation to be at its best, all members must see themselves reflected in its goals, structures, and practices. The BCTF will strive to identify and eliminate barriers to participation through programs, procedures, by-laws, and policies supported by specified resources and education. The BCTF supports equity, diversity, and inclusion within the union, the workplace, and in broader society and acknowledges that: 1. discrimination and harassment must not be ignored and must be challenged and rectified. 2. not all discrimination is deliberate or visible. Inadvertent, hidden, and systemic discrimination must be identified and addressed. 3. the marginalization of certain groups must be specifically recognized. These groups include, but are not necessarily limited to women; racialized workers; Indigenous people; people who are lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, intersex, questioning, or two-spirit; people with disabilities; and those whose participation is impeded because of economic circumstances or family status. 4. equal opportunity to participate in the Federation does not mean treating all members the same. Within a democratic framework, promoting the engagement of members of equity-seeking groups is a valid and necessary approach to reaching equal outcomes. 5. Federation programs and policies designed to eliminate barriers must not only do so, they must be widely seen to do so.
