Sad news – our dear Margie passed away peacefully on Nov 17th, 2020.  She was President of the STA from 1990-92, and was instrumental in bargaining many of the provisions we have today. The 1990 bargaining round was when we won the most significant gains in 40 years of bargaining before and after, and Margie was co-chief negotiator. Margie retired in the early 2000s, and in her career in Surrey, in addition to her time as a released officer, she worked at Brookside and before that, Senator Reid. We were able to hear a bit more about Margie at our General Meeting Nov 18th.  Please find attached an article about Margie that was published in the Teacher a couple of years ago. She was a truly great Surrey teacher, and the rights of Surrey Teachers were her great focus. More information to come in next weeks’ bulletin.
