As BC teachers prepare to vote on escalating job action and a potential full-scale strike, BCTF President Jim Iker has announced rotating strikes will continue next week.

“BC teachers remain committed to negotiating a fair and reasonable deal that provides better support for our students,” said Iker. “It’s time for Premier Christy Clark to provide the employer with new funding that will help bring the two sides closer together on class size, composition, staffing levels for specialist teachers, and wages.”
