    No fine for striking teachers' union - CBC British Columbia -
    A B.C. Supreme Court justice has decided not to fine the B.C. Teachers' Federation for its ongoing illegal strike action, but is imposing severe financial restrictions that include no more strike pay.

    Madam Justice Brenda Brown had ruled on Sunday that the BCTF was in contempt of court, and she then directed the teachers to end their strike and return to the classroom,

    Now, she has ruled that the union has breached that court order - and as a result she says the BCTF can no longer pay its members to continue to break the law.
