B-C’s Education Minister promises Provincial Exams, report cards and final grades will not be affected if the teachers union votes to hold a full-scale walkout,
Peter Fassbender is pleading with the teachers’ union NOT to hold a full-scale walkout in the wake of yesterday’s developments from the Labour Board.
That ruling said the government can dock the teachers’s wages by 10% for their initial strike action.
Fassbender says with the full-scale strike, he still not move on back-to-work legislation but will promise students they will finish the end of the school year with what they need.
He says, “We will insure that every graduate will be able to complete their required exam. They will be marked as well as the other grades where exams are critical.”
Fassbender says he recognizes the union’s decreased wages but says it’s still not enough.
