Teachers and Government reach tentative deal to end strike

It remains unclear when school will start, more specific information about that aspect of the strike should be released later today.

Negotiations resumed last week under increasing pressure from the public and suggestions by the government that legislating an end to the dispute was an option.

Last Wednesday, the B.C. Teachers’ Federation voted overwhelmingly to end their dispute if the government agreed to binding arbitration, something the government firmly rejected.

Teachers launched full-scale job action two weeks before the summer break and students have missed more than two weeks of their new school year.

The federation and B.C. governments, no matter what political affiliation, have a decades-long history of animosity and difficult labour disputes.
