ETFO Ruling -- I Don't Get It
According to this news item that came out yesterday, "The Elementary Teachers Federation broke the law when it advised members to withdraw from extracurricular activities." But then later in the article it states "The union said it will abide by the ruling, adding the decision confirms its assertion that the advice to members about withdrawing voluntary services was not a directive."
I don't get it. If the advice was not a directive, then why was it illegal? Can someone explain this to me?
