      On October 8, the School Reform Commission (SRC) made the disgraceful decision to cancel their union contract with the Philadelphia Federation of Teachers (PFT). Imposing terms unilat­erally is an attack not only on more than 12,000 dedicated teachers, counsellors, school nurs­es, support personnel and the children they teach and care for — it also was a direct attack on collective bargaining.
