CTV Vancouver: B.C. Federation of Labour offers Teachers’ Union $8 million

This comes after the B.C. Teachers’ Union ran out of funds which have left those on strike without pay for months.

“We owe a debt of gratitude to these teachers who have given up their paycheques to try to put the money and resources back in the system,” B.C Federation of Labour President, Jim Sinclair told CTV.

“We’re not going to let money be a problem for 41,000 teachers who are standing up for public education.”

The BCFL is also asking Premier Christy Clark to accept teachers’ request for binding arbitration, which they describe as “a common and sensible tool in stalled negotiations.”
