VIDEO: Broten Says Province Is Ready For Teacher Strike Action
Watch and see.
That's the attitude the education minister is taking when it comes to the province's public elementary teachers, who are threatening strike action as early as next week.
Their union says they would give parents 72 hours notice, if they decide to make a move.
While Laurel Broten underlines the province has the tools to step in to deal with strike action of any kind, she continues to refuse to outline what they are. She says they would assess situations on a case-by-case basis, first figuring out how kids are impacted by whatever happens.
Broten underlined the strikes are not a reality yet.
This comes as public secondary teachers have broken off talks with the province.
Broten reminds all teachers to continue with their "obligation" to bargain with local school boards.
