MONTREAL – Police moved in on striking teachers who were camped outside the Quebec Education Ministry early Thursday morning.
The teachers were camped out all day Wednesday on Fullum Street, just across from the ministry, and had organized a tent-in.
This comes after a full day of strikes across the province, where hundreds of thousands of teachers and public sector workers took to the streets in protest of contract negotiations with the provincial government.
The teachers were asked to leave around 12:30 a.m. as the land is owned by Transports Quebec.
Police confirmed teachers brought down their camp peacefully and were gone by 1 a.m.
