Saskatchewan teachers announce sanctions, withdrawing voluntary and extracurricular services

The Saskatchewan Teachers’ Federation (STF) is taking action against the government over stalled contract talks.

The STF announced Monday teachers are withdrawing all voluntary and extracurricular services starting Thursday, March 12.

“It is extremely frustrating that government admits there is a problem but refuses to address it,” said STF president Patrick Maze.

“Students are paying the price. Teachers have made it clear that securing adequate classroom resources for students is worth fighting for.”

The STF said teachers will also report to school and provide service no more than 15 minutes before the start of the school day.

They will not stay later than 15 minutes at the end of the school day.

The STF said teachers will continue to supervise students at recess, lunch and bus supervision within start and end timeframes.
