The teachers’ union and the employer are squaring off at the Labour Relations Board of issues including teachers being docked pay.
At issue, among other things, is whether the BC Public School Employer Association is allowed to dock teachers pay by 10% for their early stages of job action.
That includes not supervising kids and not meeting or communicating with administrators.
BCPSEA argues teachers should get reduced pay for reduced work,
Its lawyer says the union disagrees, claiming if teachers show up for work, they should get full pay even if they don’t complete all their duties because of an essential services order.
The union is still to make its case.
The hearing continues.
