“BCTF President Jim Iker is threatening a full-scale teachers’ strike within the next two weeks if the government doesn’t put more money on the table.
Iker says teachers will take a strike vote on Monday, June 9 and Tuesday, June 10 to get a mandate for escalated job action.
Rotating strikes will also continue next week, and the schedule will be released tomorrow.”
Without more government money on the table, Iker said, field trips will be cancelled and report cards will not be issued because of increasing job action on the part of the province’s 41,000 teachers.
Iker said the decision to go to a vote on a full strike was made Tuesday, even before the Labour Relations Board ruled against the union.
