IEA President Sherri Wood received the following message from Nova Scotia Teachers Union President Alexis Allen:
Dear President Wood: As President of the Nova Scotia Teachers Union in Nova Scotia, Canada, I am writing a letter of solidarity in your fight against the attack on the collective bargaining rights of teachers across the United States. I represent close to 11,000 public school teachers and Community College members who have been watching in dismay at those trying to strip collective agreements and the rights contained within. This must be stopped. We applaud your efforts to date and encourage you to keep up the fight for all.
