A second one-day teachers strike is happening this Monday

SASKATOON - Saskatchewan Teachers’ Federation is going on a one-day strike again this coming Monday. 

STF President Samantha Becotte announced the next round of job action in a Zoom call with reporters Thursday. The strike on Monday, Jan. 22 will be the second one-day provincewide strike by the teachers' union in less than a week, the first one having ataken place on Tuesday.

"It is unfortunate that we have to take these actions," said Becotte on the call. "Teachers want to be in their classroom, supporting their students day in and day out. We recognize this creates challenges for families across the province. But the years of underfunding that we have experienced in education, the lack of supports that are left in schools, have created significant challenges for many families across the province as well. Teachers are saying enough is enough.”
