BC teachers will begin rotating strikes starting next week

Darpan News Desk Darpan, 20 May, 2014
  • BC teachers will begin rotating strikes starting next week

BC teachers strike is moving in to its next phase with the commencement of rotating strikes from next week. BC Teachers' Federation said the union will hold one day walkouts in every school district across the province.

BC Teachers' Federation president Jim Iker said the strikes will begin Monday, May 26, in Vancouver and 15 other school districts.

The strike will then rotate into different districts on May 27, 28 and 29. Schools will reopen Friday May 30.

Iker added that the second phase of job action was taken after lack of progress bargaining with the provincial government on wages, class size and composition.

"Every single region of our province will be affected every single day," Iker said.

"On the days school districts are out teachers will be on the picket line."

Recently, the government threatened to cut teachers' pay by five per cent if a new contract agreement is not reached by the end of school year. However, the union representing the BC teachers responded back saying it will take the issue to the Labour Relations Board.
