I maintain my absolute right, obligation even, as an Area Representative to consult with my constituents on matters affecting their well-being.

The current impasse between unions and the Government on the issue of salary increase is one such matter, and I am grateful to the more than fifty teachers of my constituency, who showed up for the very fruitful discussion that took place this afternoon.

I am very encouraged by the exchange of ideas that took place at the session, and I will as a result be making some suggestions to the Hon. Prime Minister, which can hopefully move the process in a positive direction.
I denounce any suggestion that this type of dialogue between a duly elected Area Representative and his constituents can be characterized as union-busting.
