Saskatchewan teachers are holding a second one-day strike on Monday, as they say more than six months of contract negotiations with the province have reached a stalemate.
The Saskatchewan Teachers’ Federation says talks over classroom sizes and complexity are at an impasse, while the province says it has offered teachers a “fair deal” and remains ready to bargain.
Monday’s strike comes after some 13,000 STF members walked out and picketed across the province last Tuesday, the union’s first strike since 2011.
The province and the federation have been negotiating since June. The teachers’ collective agreement expired in August. In October, the union members voted 95 per cent in favour of authorizing possible sanctions and job actions.
