NSTU Labour Action – Information for Parents & Guardians

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

This morning, the Nova Scotia Teachers Union alerted media 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 TCRSB schools and students will be made available in the coming days.

Please continue to monitor the TCRSB website at and the mainstream media for updates and developments.  

 Information for Parents and Guardians from the Department of Education and Early Childhood Development

October 27, 2016

On Tuesday, October 25, the Nova Scotia Teachers Union (NSTU) voted in favour of a strike. The earliest NSTU members can take any form of job action is December 3, 2016. Potential job actions can range from a province-wide strike to work-to-rule.

The government will continue to work with the NSTU and is committed to addressing teacher working and student learning conditions. A new partnership working group, comprised of representatives from the NSTU, school boards and the Department of Education and Early Childhood Development, will have their first meeting within the next two weeks to continue to talk about the important issues facing teacher working and student learning conditions.

We understand that talk of any labour disruption can result in anxiety and concern for students and their families. Should a job action occur, every effort will be made to minimize disruptions to your child’s education.

As the situation evolves, updates will be available through and @nseducation on Twitter.
