Tyee Poll: Do You Support B.C. Teachers' Rotating Strike Action?

As The Tyee's education reporter, Katie Hyslop, reported:

"The B.C. Teachers' Federation will begin rotating strikes on Monday, May 26, in response to what it sees as an unwillingness by the government to fairly negotiate a new contract for teachers...
"The union has divided the province's school districts into four groups, each of which will be behind a picket line for one day of the week of May 26. The strikes will happen through May 29. All schools will be open on Friday, May 30, but Iker said the union would continue the rotating strikes after that 'if necessary,' depending on progress at the bargaining table."

Full details on how negotiations got to this stage, here.

So, what do you think? Do you support the teachers' decision to begin to rotating strikes?
