High school teachers are ramping up their strike action after refusing the latest collective agreement from the Ministry of Education.

The Post-Primary Teachers' Association says on Wednesday, teachers will refuse to take part in extra curricular activities, like sport, adding to the list of industrial actions.

The bargaining facilitator has recommended it suspends strike action while it considers arbitration but the union is pushing on.
