Strike schedule released

The BCTF has just released the schedule for the third week of rotating strike action. 

At the same time BC teachers are also preparing to vote on escalating job action and a potential full-scale strike next week. 

“BC teachers remain committed to negotiating a fair and reasonable deal that provides better support for our students,” said BCTF President Jim Iker. “It’s time for Premier Christy Clark to provide the employer with new funding that will help bring the two sides closer together on class size, composition, staffing levels for specialist teachers, and wages.” 

The planned schedule of school closures for the Southern Interior are as follows:

Wednesday, June 11
22—Vernon
58—Nicola Similkameen
67—Okanagan Skaha

Thursday, June 12
05—Southeast Kootenay
20—Kootenay Columbia
23—Central Okanagan

83—North Okanagan-Shuswap

Friday, June 13
08—Kootenay Lake
19—Revelstoke
53—South Okanagan Similkameen
73—Kamloops Thompson
81—Fort Nelson
