TEACHERS WANT TO REFUSE WORK

More and more teachers are wondering how to legally refuse unsafe work, according to the Saskatchewan Teachers’ Federation (STF).

Patrick Maze, president of STF, says teachers’ concerns about returning to class follow the province’s back-to-school plan announced earlier this month.

“Having 32 or 34 students in a poorly ventilated room for six hours a day is kind of a recipe for disaster. Some teachers are very worried, ”Maze said.

“We hear a lot of questions about the process and let them know what their responsibilities are.”
