B.C. teachers can keep drawing full salaries and don’t have to fill out report cards as part of their “controlled strike” during contract talks with the provincial government, a labour tribunal has ruled.
The B.C. Labour Relations Board (LRB) released the ruling late Tuesday in response to a B.C. Public School Employers Association (BCPSEA) application in October.
BCPSEA had asked the board to order the B.C. Teachers’ Federation to reimburse the association an amount equal to 15 per cent of the total gross salaries and benefits paid to the province’s 40,000 teachers.
