Langley teachers walk off the job Tuesday, May 27

Langley teachers will walk off the job on Tuesday, May 27 as part of a B.C.-wide rotating strike action.

As a result of the unwillingness of the provincial government and the BC Public School Employers’ Association to offer any improvements to class size, class composition, and other important learning conditions for students, as well as the employer’s unfair wage demands, teachers will begin rotating strikes on Monday, said the B.C. Teachers Federation in a statement.

Schools will be closed in districts across the province in four straight days of job action.

More details to come.
