Paul Wozney re-elected as NSTU President
(Halifax, NS) Paul Wozney has been re-elected as President of the Nova Scotia Teachers Union (NSTU).
He defeated Shelburne County teacher Colleen Scott in today’s election, receiving 81 per cent of the vote.
Prior to first being elected President in 2018, Wozney taught at Charles P. Allen High School in Bedford, NS. Along with his wife, Dr. Lori Wozney, PhD, they are raising three children, all of whom attend public schools in HRCE.
Wozney’s leadership is defined by connection with grassroots members and their concerns.
“I have worked tirelessly for the past two years to advocate for teachers and students, and to resolve conflicts with Government on major issues like the illegal mistreatment of school-based specialists and realizing a free, fair collective agreement after Government illegally legislated a contract in 2017,” says Wozney “The results of today’s vote again demonstrate the solidarity of nearly 10,000 teachers and their collective will to take the lead in realizing lasting, positive change in our schools and communities. I’m humbled to have the opportunity to continue this critical work with them.”
A total of 5,963 NSTU members voted electronically today, 63 per cent of the membership. Wozney’s second term officially begins on February 21, 2021.
