If you’re not white, in one teacher’s union in Ontario, your vote counts more than a single voice. White people have less of a voice.
The Ontario Secondary School Teachers’ Federation for district 20 announced on Monday a change in their rules so that non-white union members would have their vote weighted more than white members.
During the meeting, when the term reverse racism was used, some members used the school’s harmful language policy by going to the principal and reporting on the union members who uttered this phrase.
