NSTU to begin work-to-rule strike on December 5th

This morning, the Nova Scotia Teachers Union announced that it intends to begin a work-to-rule strike action on Monday, December 5th at all schools in Nova Scotia. 

The NSTU has described the work-to-rule in this way: Teachers will continue to carry out their instructional duties in classrooms, but will not support any extracurricular activities like concerts, coaching teams or supervising clubs; field trips will not go ahead. The NSTU has indicated that teachers will arrive 20 minutes before school and leave 20 minutes after, as stipulated in the Teachers Provincial Agreement. 

More details about the impact of a work-to-rule strike on CCRSB schools and students will be made available in the coming days. 

Please continue to monitor the CCRSB website at, as well as Facebook, twitter and the mainstream media for updates and developments.
