Sanctions

Sanctions Suspended March 27, 2020

The Teachers’ Bargaining Committee, after consultation with the STF Executive, has suspended the sanction action effective immediately. Please note the sanction action has been suspended, not cancelled, and may be implemented in the future.

Restriction of Services Sanction March 12 until further notice

Beginning Thursday, March 12, 2020, a Restriction of Services sanction will be implemented provincewide for all STF members and will remain in effect until further notice:

  • Members are to report to school and provide professional service no more than 15 minutes prior to the start of the school day and not later than 15 minutes after the conclusion of the school day.
  • For example, if the school day begins at 9:00 a.m. and ends at 3:30 p.m., teachers will arrive at 8:45 a.m. and leave at 3:45 p.m.
  • Members will continue to provide student supervision, such as recess or bus supervision, within the time frame specified above.
  • Work to support classroom instruction required outside of the hours prescribed above is to be completed off-site.
  • There is to be no provision of voluntary or extracurricular services during the sanction period.

In a vote held on February 10 and 11, 2020, Saskatchewan teachers voted 90.2 percent in favour of sanctions with an exceptionally high voter turnout of 96.6 percent. This strong result demonstrates teachers' resolve and commitment to ensure students have access to the supports they need.

This page will be updated with public information regarding the implementation of further sanctions.
