Teachers to Vote on Renewed Sanctions Mandate

News Release
On May 15 and 16, Saskatchewan teachers will vote on giving the STF Executive a mandate to implement sanctions beyond the current school year, as the existing mandate expires on June 30, 2024. The goal of the Saskatchewan Teachers’ Federation is to reach a new provincial collective bargaining agreement at the negotiating table without further interruptions to students and families, but after a year of strained negotiations, the STF must prepare for the possibility that government’s intransigence could continue into the next school year now that its final offer has been decisively rejected by teachers. The mandate resulting from the upcoming sanctions vote will be in effect until an agreement is reached.
