Strength to Advocate #withwozney: the power of the president to write

A vote #withwozney gives NSTU members a president with strength to advocate.

As president, communication that elevates the cause of public education and the status of our profession demands skill, conviction and polish as a speaker, interviewee, writer, social media presence and more.

A vote #withwozney supports someone who did all of this before they had a position, and has continued to do so after they obtained a position.

You won’t have to hope that I can communicate in a way that resonates with members and the public. You can know that I already have.

This piece has been read over 22,000 times, and teacher organizations across Canada and abroad have shared it with their members as part of empowering them in job action to challenge for fair wages and quality working conditions.

On May 23, your vote #withwozney empowers a president unafraid to speak up for what matters most to members. I invite you to join me in realizing an NSTU we can be proud of.
