A tentative deal has been settled in the months-long B.C. public school teachers’ strike, this means teachers could vote to end their strike on Thursday and students could be back in class by early next week.
The breakthrough in negotiations between the B.C. Teachers’ Federation and the B.C. Public School Employers’ Association comes on the fourth day of marathon talks at a Richmond, B.C., hotel.
“Sources have since confirmed the length of the proposed deal and told CBC News the pay increases are in line with other public sector workers in the seven to eight per cent range”
The tentative agreement is is to resolve grievances regarding class size. There will also be an increase to the governments learning improvement fund.
Teachers could vote on Thursday says BCTF.
