BCTF wins strike mandate but says job action not imminentMarch 7, 2014

Author: Webmaster

Teachers voted solidly in support of strike action this week, as expected, but union president Jim Iker assured the public Thursday that no immediate disruptions in schools are planned.

Contract talks are continuing as the government and the B.C. Teachers’ Federation (BCTF) try to reach a collective agreement to replace the one that expired June 30. The union has 90 days to initiate job action and, if it decides to do so, it would likely affect administration first, Iker said.

The vote is a pressure tactic and the union said it would seek further approval from members before any full-scale walkout. More details are available in the Vancouver Sun and the CBC.
