Classes resume as teacher talks stall
Students are heading back to school in B.C. today but they won't be getting full service from their teachers.
Members of the BC Teachers Federation are taking limited strike action, including refusing to do any administrative work, to protest contract talks that are stalled over the union's demand for more money and benefits.
Education Minister George Abbott says the government doesn't have any more money and he'll be watching to ensure teachers stick by their promise to focus on teaching students and not expand their strike.
NDP leader Adrian Dix accuses the government of leaking details related to the negotiations and says the two sides should focus on the bargaining table.
