Sask. teachers continue job action with noon supervision withdrawal again Tuesday


Sask. teachers in several school divisions again plan to pause noon-hour supervision on Tuesday as part of their rotating strikes.

The one-day job action is in addition to the previously announced countdown ahead of a province-wide withdrawal of extracurricular activities scheduled for Tuesday and Wednesday, Saskatchewan Teachers’ Federation (STF) said in a release Saturday morning.

By law, 48 hours' notice is required for job action. However, the STF is providing extra time to allow families to make arrangements.

Withdrawal of noon-hour supervision means STF members will not be available to supervise students who are eating lunch at school or taking part in noon-hour activities.

The following local associations will be affected by Tuesday’s pause of noon-hour supervision:

- Chinook Teachers’ Association – All schools in Chinook School Division

- Horizon Teachers’ Association – All schools in Horizon School Division

- Northern Area Teachers’ Association – All schools in Northern Lights School Division

- North West Teachers’ Association – All schools in Northwest School Division

- Prairie Spirit Teachers’ Association – All schools in Prairie Spirit School Division

- Prairie Valley Teachers’ Association – All schools in Prairie Valley School Division

- Prince Albert and Area Teachers’ Association – All schools in Saskatchewan Rivers School Division and Prince Albert Catholic School Division

- Sun West Teachers’ Association – All schools in Sun West School Division

Teachers and the province remain at odds over a new contract after a second impasse was declared by the Saskatchewan Teachers’ Federation (STF) in February.

On Friday, STF announced that Sask. teachers will picket at the legislative building on Monday as part of a one-day rotating strike.

STF said teachers from various school divisions will gather in front of the legislative building as spring gets underway. Top Stories
