Christchurch / Canterbury Schools, Education, NZEI, Protest - Have a Voice

One Wet Fish and a Crayon

damn you all So, NZEI Christchurch members voted overwhelmingly to strike on the 19th of February…

… and after waiting what feels like a lifetime for NZEI big bods to let everyone know what’s going to happen and how, we find out that that the plan is for someone to sit in a dark cupboard and whimper gently whilst shaking their fists at the gods, shouting “Damn you allll, damn you all to helllll…”

hit with a fish

There might even be a 2nd person waving a wet kipper

and a third writing a stern letter in crayon.

toga party at the Beehive

And all the while, back in the Beehive, The Great Lord Communicator of Sith and the Emperor Wonkey Johnkey will be swishing their togas and dining on caviare and shredded Talent2 communiques and laughing themselves all the way to the front bench.

I’ll get mi coat…


NZEI’s planned action

  1. The members who have spoken to me have expressed dismay at home lame the union’s response has been on this and other matters. No strong voice, no strong action, nothing. We roll over now and later down the line wonder why we were steamrollered.

  2. I sense that you would prefer something more confrontational, however, it was local members on the ground that decided the shape of the day. This was not a top down decision. I’m not sure if you are an NZEI member, but I’m sure if you are that your local branch or Area Council would welcome your involvement and activism.
