Teri Mooring to Lead BC Teachers’ Federation

A woman from Quesnel will serve as the new President of the BC Teachers’ Federation.

Teri Mooring will take over from Glen Hannsman when his three-year term comes to an end on June 30, 2019.

Mooring is currently serving as one of the Federation’s lead negotiators in this round of provincial collective bargaining and has been a Vice-President of the BCTF for the last six years.

“As she moves into the role of BCTF President, Teri is looking forward to raising awareness about the inequities facing schools in small, rural, and remote communities,” stated a news release.

“She wants to make sure the same opportunities for children and teachers are available in small towns that exist in large urban areas.”

Mooring grew up in Quesnel and worked at Cariboo Pulp and Paper where her father was the local union president.

She was just starting her teaching career in 1988 when teachers in Quesnel and across B.C first unionized. She was also a young staff representative when Quesnel teachers negotiated their first collective agreement.

The BCTF has 43,000 members.
