At the 2022 Annual General Meeting of the teachers’ union, a motion to divest the teachers’ pension fund from all oil and gas investments received overwhelming support from teachers in B.C. And yet, despite the clear signal from its membership, the BCTF is still refusing to follow through.
The BCTF represents 49,000 public school teachers. Their pensions are invested by the BC Investment Management Corporation (BCI), which manages over $200 billion in assets, including all public sector pensions. That’s why teachers in B.C. are organizing to force the BCTF to respect the wishes of their membership and start to divest teacher pensions from fossil fuels.
