After more than six months of negotiations, the B.C. Public School Employers’ Association announced on Monday that it has reached a tentative contract agreement with the B.C. Teachers’ Federation.
The BCPSEA, which negotiates on behalf of the provincial government, said in a statement that the deal was struck on Friday.
“Teachers play an incredibly important role in the lives of their students and their communities,” said Leanne Bowes, the association’s executive director of labour relations.
“The dedication of teachers throughout the pandemic has brought much needed support to so many families.”
Negotiations began on March 15 and both sides met a total of 47 times.
