Saskatchewan teachers plan rotating strike at various schools Thursday

REGINA — Saskatchewan teachers are planning more job action this week.

The Saskatchewan Teachers’ Federation says there will be rotating full−day strikes Thursday at various schools throughout the province.

The union and the government have been at an impasse after bargaining for a new contract broke down.

Teachers held two one−day strikes earlier this month to pressure the government on class sizes and supports for students with complex needs.

The province has said it won’t negotiate on those issues.

It says it has increased funding to schools and is starting pilot projects to address student supports.
