JOB ACTION - INFORMATION & UPDATES
As a district we want to ensure that our school communities are immediately provided with information regarding the provincial education labour negotiations between the BCTF and the BCPSEA - and when we might be able to open our schools for instruction. We encourage you to refer often to the front page of the district website for the latest updates: www.sd41.bc.ca or www.burnabyschools.ca
The Burnaby Board of Education and senior district staff continue to remind those at the bargaining table that the needs of our students are a shared priority. While we don't yet know when the 2014/15 school year will begin – we know that when it does, we are committed to ensuring that it is a successful school year for all.
