Some proms will go ahead despite the work to rule by teachers. A couple of businesses have gotten together to make sure proms are held at 4 high schools.
DJ Majestic and Timeless, a formalwear shop, are looking for volunteers to help put on the proms for Glace Bay, Riverview, Sydney Academy and Memorial High.
Brittany Woodworth, who owns Timeless, told the CBC hopefully the work-to-rule will be settled before prom dates, but they want an alternative to be ready. The Bayplex, Centre 200 and Emera Centre are saving dates for the proms.
