The Saskatchewan Teachers Federation has issued another notice for job action in the province, again focusing on an extracurricular strike.

In the recent announcement, teachers will not be taking part in extracurricular activities from Monday, March 25 to Thursday, March 28.

“For weeks we have made it clear that job action would escalate if government continued its refusal to negotiate or agree to binding arbitration on class size and complexity – the issue that is most important to teachers,” says STF President Samantha Becotte, “The withdrawal of extracurricular activities during the four days leading up to spring break demonstrates that teachers remain steadfast in their call for sustainable funding for prekindergarten to Grade 12 education."

Withdrawal of extracurricular activities means teachers will not provide voluntary services involved in the organization, supervision, or facilitation of activities including athletics, non-curricular arts, field trips, student travel, graduation preparations, school clubs, and other activities.

Becotte says that this action would constitute the longest-ever job action by the STF.

Some school divisions outside of the southeast will also see teachers withdraw from noon-hour supervision on Monday, March 25.
