The BC Teachers’ Federation and the province’s negotiator are blaming each other for possible impacts to students during their contract dispute…
Teachers are planning rotating walk outs starting Monday, and the Public School Employers Association says it’s going to impose a limited lock-out, and follow it up with three days of full lock outs in June.
BCTF president Jim Iker says being locked out will mean teachers can’t mark provincial exams, help with extra curriculars or even grad ceremonies.
Government negotiator Peter Cameron says that’s not true.
Negotiations were supposed to continue Friday, but there are also reports they’re being put off.
In our area the teachers’ walk outs will be May 27th in Nanaimo Ladysmith, May 28th in Qualicum and May 29th on the Sunshine Coast.
