Teachers have been on a limited strike since the beginning of the school year, but because of essential services legislation, that job action has been limited to skipping administrative tasks rather than a full-scale walkout.
The B.C. Teachers' Federation wants that to change, and asked the Labour Relations Board on Monday night to allow teachers to pull their services for four days a week for two weeks. The board is expected to rule Tuesday morning.
Their employer countered by suggesting teachers should be limited to walking out for a single day over a 10-day period, while returning to their full duties when they're at work.
