The overwhelming majority of teachers across the province have voted to implement more job action sanctions should bargaining talks fall apart with the province.

Over the last two days, 83 per cent of teachers cast ballots with 95 per cent of them directing the Saskatchewan Teachers' Federation to put further sanctions in place if required.

The Teachers’ Bargaining Committee and Government-Trustee Bargaining Committee have spent the last two days at the table in Saskatoon and have agreed to meet for a third consecutive day tomorrow.

“We welcome the resumption of negotiations this week, and we are optimistic that teachers’ decisive rejection of the government’s contract offer, and this renewed sanctions mandate, will serve as a wake-up call,” said STF President Samantha Becotte.

The STF will provide 48 hours' notice before any job action is rolled out.
