The British Columbia Teachers’ Federation (BCTF) has announced that its members will be withdrawing their services for three days commencing Monday, March 5, 2012.

As a result, teachers will not be reporting for duty on the following days: 

  • Monday, March 5, 2012
  • Tuesday, March 6, 2012
  • Wednesday, March 7, 2012

While school facilities will remain open under the supervision of school district staff, we will be unable to provide students with instruction during this period of job action. Exceptions to this are programmes not staffed by BCTF employees including: 

  • FirstStart and StrongStart
  • Hazelton After School Sports Club
  • JumpStart at Parkside
  • Kitimat and PACES Child Care 

School buses will not be running on March 5, 6 and 7 and we are requesting that parents do not send their children to school on those days.

It is the sincere hope of the Board of Education that this dispute will be concluded quickly and that normal school operations will resume as soon as possible.  In the meantime, we will do our utmost to keep you informed of any new developments in a timely manner over the next week. 

For our most recent and regular media updates for this job action, please refer to the local radio station in your community and the school district website at www.cmsd.bc.ca.
