No gains in York

By Moira MacDonald
  Some 2,200 York Catholic teachers who hit the bricks last September had one thrown back at them with the release of an arbitrator's draft decision on their new contract.

Arbitrator Lloyd Houlden decided the board's high school teachers will teach seven classes instead of the six-class load they had insisted on during their three-week long strike.

There will also be no raises for either elementary or secondary school teachers. The union had asked for a 1% hike.

"What we have now is not as bad" as the board originally proposed, said Ihor Baczynsky, the teachers' local union leader, "but it's something that never would have been achieved through negotiation."

Parents are "elated," to put the matter behind them, said Mary Ann Gallacher, who has two children in York's Catholic schools. The strike was "a major, major tactical mistake and parents won't forgive (the teachers) for a long time."
