ETFO Waterloo Teacher Local VP Jeff Pelich: “We’re frustrated.”

“We’re frustrated because we have seen the benefits of smaller class sizes,” says Jeff Pelich, vice president of ETFO’s Waterloo Teacher Local, who is quoted in an article on the Kitchener Today website.

Pelich says his members often say they’d prefer smaller class sizes over wage and benefit improvements.
