Province-wide rotating strikes by teachers begin Monday May 26th in response to the BC government’s cynical bargaining tactics and rampant disregard for the principle of collective bargaining. COPE members are invited to picket with the teachers of the Vancouver Elementary School Teachers Association (VESTA). COPE members will be joining the picket at Queen Alexandra Elementary at 1300 E Broadway, Vancouver, from 7:30am to 9:30am and from 3pm-6pm. Bring an apple for a teacher, some treats, or just your solidarity. We’d love to have a sizable group of COPE members under the big COPE banner.
If you have Facebook, please take a moment to RSVP so we can have an idea of numbers: click to join.
If you just have a few moments before work, or would prefer to stay in your neighbourhood, have a look here and find an elementary school near you requesting support on the picket line. Please share widely!
