B.C. Teachers Federation announces stage one job action

Under stage one job action teachers will no longer undertake any mandated supervision of students outside of regularly scheduled classes except as set out by an essential services order, attend any meetings with management other than meetings of the worksite Joint Health and Safety Committee, provide principals or administrators with any routine printed, written, or electronic communication, or receive any printed, written, or electronic communication from an administrator.

In a release, President of the B.C. Teachers Federation Jim Iker says “The government and BCPSEA continue to demand concessions while ignoring the BC Supreme Court ruling on class size, composition, and staffing levels. In addition, the unreasonable 10-year term and salary proposals, which include up to two more years of zeros, are still on the table.”

If matters escalate to stage two job action that would involve strikes on a rotating basis.
