B.C.'s 45,000 teachers have tentative contract with government

Tentative deal for teachers

A tentative agreement has been reached with British Columbia's 45,000 public school teachers.

Thursday night, the provincial government announced the deal focuses on improving services for students and offering fair and affordable compensation.

Details of the contract won't be released until after it's ratified, although the government says the deal was reached under the guidelines of its sustainable services negotiating mandate.

In 2019, that mandate included a two per cent wage increase over each of three years.

The contract covers teachers who work in 60 B.C. school districts.

A tweet by the B.C. Teachers' Federation says the executive committee is recommending that the agreement be accepted.
