Teachers meet to determine reaction to Bill 22 0
Teachers will again hit streets Monday to demonstrate and hand out leaflets. The move comes during the B.C. Teachers' Federation's annual general meeting, which wraps up Tuesday.
It's expected the union will decide on a plan of action in response to Victoria's Bill 22, passed last week.
The legislation, which now restricts teachers from striking and slaps those who do with severe fines, has forced the union to be creative. It's been suggested a province-wide ban on extracurricular activities be rolled out to increase pressure on the government.
About 700 B.C. teachers from across the province have been meeting in Vancouver since Saturday. Tuesday will also see members vote for the union's executive council where president Susan Lambert is being challenged.
