The earliest B-C’s public school teachers could go on a full-scale walkout, for now, is Tuesday.
BC Teachers Federation president Jim Iker says last night’s turnout on the vote in favour of a full-scale strike was the union’s highest ever at 81%.
That comes with having to provide 72 hours notice.
He says, “The earliest, if we move to a full-scale strike would probably be on Tuesday.”
CKNW’s Bill Good also asked why no contract talks are scheduled for today.
Iker says both sides are looking at their proposals right now.
He says they want a deal by the June 30th deadline and do not want to bargain into the summer.
