Letters: ‘It’s about the children’

In the real world of negotiations, trust and good faith are required.

Re:  Where has all the money gone? (Letters, Aug. 27).

Andrea Munro is quite correct in her definition of negotiation, but goes on to use an imperfect analogy that demonstrates compromise, which is not always a part of negotiation.

In the real world of negotiations, trust and good faith are required. In the case of the teachers’ union, we have a group that spent thousands last year trying to kick Liberal MLAs out of their jobs, then this year, without batting an eye, demanded a 16 per cent raise.

Oh, it’s about the children. Right.
