Now that April’s Action Plan has ended, you may be wondering what is planned for the month of May? As we get farther and farther away from the end of our last, decreed contract (March 31st), it is important to keep the pressure on the Government and its negotiators so that we can reach a negotiated settlement.
Last Tuesday, the QPAT Board of Directors met and discussed its future action plan in order to move negotiations forward and to support the Common Front. The ESTA executive will be discussing the proposed action and will contact union reps sometime this week.
Nobody wants a strike, but it’s increasingly looking like this could be a possibility at some point. At the QPAT table the possibility of seeking a strike mandate is being discussed. Have no fear however since teachers will be consulted beforehand.
