Rotating strikes by teachers to continue next week!
BC teachers will continue their rotating job action next week, with the Comox Valley targeted on Tuesday, as the BCTF looks to step up their pressure on the BC government to hammer out a new deal. Meanwhile local teachers president Steve Stanley is asked about growing concerns from both students and parents about the impact of job action on various school activities including final exams set for June.
Stanley comments on the BCTF confirming another round of job action next week.
Meanwhile Jet News hit the streets of Courtenay this afternoon and spoke to this concerned parent who strongly supports teachers in the increasingly bitter contract dispute, which shows no sign of easing.
Comox Valley schools will be behind teachers picket lines on Thursday, although earlier the Comox Valley School District announced schools would be closed for the day.
