May 29, 2014 - BCTF Rotating Strike Action

May 20, 2014

Schools are not in session on Thursday, May 29th due to BCTF Rotating Strike Action - Letter to all North Vancouver School District Parents and Guardians on May 20, 2014:

As you may be aware, the British Columbia Teachers’ Federation announced this morning a series of rotating, one-day strikes to occur throughout the province next week. The BCTF’s decision reflects an escalation in their job action related to teacher contract bargaining.

The Teachers’ Federation has directed its members in our school district to conduct their one-day strike activity in North Vancouver on Thursday, May 29th.

While both parties will continue to negotiate between now and May 29th, we are advising all parents and guardians to fully expect that school will not be in session on May 29th. Please plan to make alternate arrangements for your child/children on that day. Should there be any changes to this plan for closure, we will communicate them to you as soon as they are confirmed.

We deeply regret any inconvenience this may cause you and your family and continue to hope for a positive resolution between the Province and the BCTF to the current situation.
