No Mandates for Teachers
As members of the BCTF, we believe every BC teacher has the right to choose whether they receive the COVID-19 vaccine, or not, without consequence, embarrassment or harassment by their employer, union or community.
A video message on Employee Rights and the COVID-19 Vaccine by Canada's top Constitutional lawyer, Rocco Galati, verifies that forced vaccinations are a direct violation of the civil liberties of all Canadians, the Canadian Constitution, the Canadian Charter of Rights, and the Universal Declaration on Human Rights
We also acknowledge that the BC Nurses Union will not mandate vaccinations but encourages vaccination. 
We also acknowledge that The Canadian Armed Forces state, ‘Like other vaccines provided to CAF members, the COVID-19 vaccine will not be mandatory; this remains a voluntary option for all.’
As teachers, we stand together, for choice. Consent matters.
