The B.C. Federation of Labour and the B.C. Nurses’ Union are expected to make separate announcements of support for teachers who began a full-scale strike back in June.
The union representing B.C. Hydro workers is also voting this week on whether to lend $100,000 to the teachers’ union.
Teachers will vote today on their union’s proposal to end the strike if government agrees to binding arbitration, though the government has rejected the idea.
