Several members of the board spoke in support of our cause, and the chairman of the board moved the following motion, namely Unanimously passed:
Whereas it has been more than a year since the teacher collective agreement expired;
Whereas several departments of Dawson have taken a stand to condemn the progress of the negotiation and forward it to the board of directors;
