MEMBERS FIRST
 It is a founding principle of the Coalition that the BC Teachers’ Federation exists to serve its members, the cause of public education and the welfare of our students.

DEMOCRATIC GOVERNANCE STRUCTURES
 The Coalition and its members believe that a strong BCTF is built upon strong locals.

Local officers and members need to be provided with pertinent
