Teachers approve 3-day strike next week
The province’s teachers overwhelmingly approved a three-day strike that starts on Monday, reports the CBC.
This morning the B.C. Teachers’ Federation announced the results of a union vote that saw teachers vote 87 per cent in favour of the job action.
They won’t work Monday, March 5, Tuesday, March 6 and Wednesday, March 7.
Earlier this week, the Labour Relations Board ruled the teachers can stage a three-day strike once, and then strike one day a week after that.
Shortly after the Labour Relations Board’s decision, the province announced they’ll introduce legislation to make any strike illegal until the summer.
