Local teachers are getting ready to ramp up job action again next week.
You can expect to see more of them setting up picket lines in Kamloops, Vancouver and Langley.
Langley Teachers’ Association President Gail Chaddock-Costello says planning is in the works.
“We will be setting up picket lines again as we still don’t have a deal. Until we have a deal, until we know we have something to bring to the members to ratify, than we are on strike. The government has kindly lifted the lockout for us to work for free, but at this point in time we are in job action so teachers should not be in schools.”
Members of the Vancouver Secondary Teachers Association have also confirmed all secondary schools will be behind picket lines starting Tuesday.
Key decisions on how union leaders move forward will be made at a special meeting tonight (Friday).
