VANCOUVER (NEWS 1130) — Teachers at the province’s public schools have reached a tentative deal with their employer, bringing an end to months of negotiations.
The union representing just over 45,000 teachers is recommending its members approve the deal, which it says was struck after “several days of marathon negotiation sessions.”

Details of the tentative agreement with the BC Public School Employers’ Association will be made public if and when the contract is ratified.
Teachers have been working without a contract since June of 2019.
Class size and composition, as well as compensation were the main sticking points.
