Teachers’ Union Holding Education Forum In Sydney, Tonight
The Nova Scotia Teachers’ Union is holding a public forum on education in Sydney, tonight.
The event is due to get underway at 6:00 this evening at the Holiday Inn.
The forum is taking place as the union plans to hold a strike vote on Tuesday even though it’s not in a position to take legal job action.
The union says a strike mandate will put it in a strong position as it continues to fight the province over some recommendations in the Glaze report.
Meanwhile, Education Minister Zach Churchill is warning an illegal strike could lead to fines for the union and individual teachers.
He also says the main issue driving the union’s opposition to the Glaze report reforms is a proposal to remove 1,000 principals and vice-principals from the teachers union.
