A rally supporting the teachers’s strike will be held in Gyro Park, Grand Forks, tomorrow, Tuesday, March 6 at noon.

Similiar rallies will be held on the same day and time across the province including one scheduled for the provincial legislature in Victoria.

The event is being sponsored by the Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE) Local 2098 School District 51 Haida Boundary to support the teachers’s decision to hold a three-day strike to protest Bill 22, which will impose a contract on them.

The province’s 40,000 teachers have been without a contract since June 2011 and negotiating one with the government since March 2011.
