Serge Laurendeau will be leaving his responsibility as president of Pearson Teachers Union
to become the president of QPAT, The Quebec Provincial Association of Teachers.
He was elected by acclamation on February 29
and will be starting his new mandate on July 1, 2008 and will now be representing all the teachers of the 9 English school boards across Québec.
Mr. Laurendeau will also be a representative on the Canadian Teachers Federation.
In a statement, Mr. Laurendeau mentions that he is looking forward to this new challenge
as the 08-09 school year will be a crucial year to prepare the consultation for the next round of provincial negotiations for teachers.
