BCTF to make announcement

Vancouver, BC, Canada / (CKNW AM) AM980

The BC Teachers Federation plans to update its contract talks with the Provincial Government at 10 a.m. this morning, and it’s possible the union will announce Stage 2 of its job action, which is rotating strikes.

It’s also possible the union will announce a change to its wage demands.

Last week the Clark Government announced it was withdrawing its demand that teachers sign a 10-year contract, instead offering a 6-year deal with a $1200 signing bonus if the deal’s done by the end of June.

But it also announced it would roll back the wages of teachers if they don’t sign by the end of this school year.
