CUPE members support teachers

CUPE members support teachers

BURNABY – The British Columbia Teachers’ Federation has issued 72-hour strike notice in response to disappointing progress in their negotiations, and job action can begin tomorrow Wednesday, April 23.

“CUPE members fully support teachers in their attempts to reach a fair and reasonable settlement,” said CUPE BC President Mark Hancock. “Our members will continue to perform their regular work and will not take on any duties normally performed by teachers.”

This first stage of job action will impact the administration, not students.

Planned job action by teachers includes:

  • not supervising students outside of regularly scheduled classes, except as set out by an essential services order;
  • not attending meetings with management other than worksite Joint Health and Safety Committee meetings;
  • not providing principals or administrators with any routine printed, written or electronic communication;
  • not receiving any printed, written or electronic communication from an administrator; and
  • not being at worksites for an hour before or after instructional time, other than for pre-arranged voluntary activities.

The BCTF notes that the government and BCPSEA continue to demand concessions while ignoring the BC Supreme Court ruling on class size composition and staffing levels. As well, two more years of zeros are still on the table.

CUPE K–12 education support workers in British Columbia are now heading into bargaining.
