Red for BCED shirts are available at the VESTA office, 2915 Commercial Drive. We’ll be in the parking lot Thursday, April 8th & Wednesday, April 14th from 3-5pm for you to swing by and get your shirt if you are in the area. We are working on the logistics of getting shirts to schools, so Staff Reps can still send their shirt orders to firstname.lastname@example.org. Those members not attached to a school can fill out the following survey.
Time to dig into your closets and find your red shirts. We’re joining Surrey Teachers’ Association in bringing back the #RedForBCED campaign. This time it’s to call for better safety measures in BC schools. With increased cases & exposures in schools, it is critical that we work collectively in our call for stricter measures.
Wear red every Friday, starting Dec.4th and share this campaign with your colleagues. You can post your socially-distanced and masked pictures to social media using the #RedForBCED and tag @VESTA39 & @BCTF to amplify your message.
You can find an infographic for sharing on the VESTA twitter feed and the VESTA website connecting #RedforBCED with issues important to teachers.
