Strike Update

For recent articles including a discussion of whether or not teachers may withdraw from extra-curricular activities, BC superintendent reactions to Bill 22, how the contract dispute may threaten graduation ceremonies, and financial compensation to teachers if class sizes for grades 4-12 exceed 30 students, please view the Vancouver Sun Report Card Blog:

Additionally recommended is a recent article by Vaughan Palmer:

Apparently, the debate on bill 22 will end in time “for the bill to be given royal assent by Lt.-Gov. Steven Point, just after 5 p.m. Thursday.”

For the Prince George District, this would presumably mean that teachers will not be on strike or in phase 1 of job action for Friday, the day before Spring Break. Younger students may be well be looking forward to recess re-starting at that time.
