The Saskatchewan Teachers' Federation (STF) announced Thursday that educators will go on another one-day strike next Monday.
This comes after teachers in the province engaged in a single-day strike on Tuesday.
"The day after our first strike action, rather than acknowledging the outstanding efforts of teachers, [Education Minister Jeremy Cockrill] attempted to make it all about salary demands," said STF President Samantha Becotte. "If he had been paying attention, he’d know our job action was about so much more than that," said Becotte. "We’re seeking long-term commitments from government on critical issues impacting students, including class size and complexity – not patchwork pilot projects that don’t fix the systemic issues in our schools."
The union said Wednesday that they would be beginning some kind of job action Monday, unless they saw movement in negotiations with the province.
The STF is required to give 48 hours notice before implementing job action.
