- Updated: Province brings in legislation to resolve teacher contract dispute »
The BC Labour Relations Board says teachers can go on strike for three consecutive days as long as they give two days notice.
After that they’re allowed one day per week to walk out.
BCTF had asked for four days per week, while the employers wanted one day every two weeks
Membership will vote this week on whether to proceed with a full walkout, while this afternoon the province plans to introduce legislation to end the labour negotiations.
If the province legislates a settlement, teachers will no longer be in a legal strike position and will have to decide on a future course of action.
