Education Minister Abbott rules out prolonged teachers’ strike

B.C. students returning to school next month will likely face a reduction of services but a prolonged teachers’ strike isn’t something the government will let stand for long, said Education Minister George Abbott.

Abbott told reporters Tuesday he’s not optimistic that a contract agreement between the B.C. Teachers’ Federation and the B.C. Public School Employers’ Association will be reached before start of the school year, resulting in limited job action by the teachers.
