QPAT recommends strike action

and adoption of modified action plan

 The QPAT Board of Directors is recommending that member unions seek a mandate for three days of strike in support of our demands in negotiations.  Amongst others, the QPAT Board is seeking support for demands for improved services to special needs students and for salary increases.  Details of the state of negotiations and on our demands will be made available to you in the very near future in preparation for the vote.

 

The QPAT Board of Directors has also recommended that member unions adopt a new Action Plan in support of our demands in negotiations.  The new Action Plan is as follows:

 

  • Boycott all non-contract committees except the governing board;
  • Refuse all voluntary substitution;
  • Boycott all training sessions, committees, tables, etc. related to reform implementation;
  • Demonstrate at school board meetings;
  • Continue disruption of reporting procedures;
  • Wear black or jeans on Tuesdays.

 

You will note that the new Action Plan does not include boycotts on extra-curricular activities and field trips, for the following reasons:

 

  • Our negotiators report that these two actions are no longer useful in putting pressure on the negotiating table;
  • These two actions have provoked a decrease in public support as well as editorial support;
  • A number of cultural institutions have been negatively affected and have voiced these concerns very forcefully, which has contributed to the erosion in public support;
  • We are reducing the number of actions while at the same time seeking a mandate for three days of strike.

Your local union will contact you in the very near future regarding the method of voting for the strike mandate in your area.
