School Trustees of Greater Victoria: Stop discrimination against teachers taking pregnancy/parental leaves

School District 61 (Greater Victoria) has recently announced they will not offer certain contracts to teachers who will be taking a pregnancy or parental leave. This is discriminatory, and violates teachers' human rights. A public school district should support women's and parent's rights, not discriminate against them in employment. The school district should stop trying to save money on the backs of mothers and parents and ensure that all teachers have equal access to all work and benefits.

This petition was delivered to:
  • Chair, Board of Education, School District 61
    Peg Orcherton
  • Vice Chair, Board of Education, School District 61
    Tom Ferris
  • Board of Education, School District 61
