The government and BC Teachers Federation have agreed to bargain all weekend in Vancouver in an effort to reach a deal.
BC Teachers Union President Jim Iker says he’s respecting the media black out and refusing to comment on progress, if any with the ongoing negotiations.
No one has been seen coming in and out of the discussions, except for food.
While a media blackout has been imposed, we do know the two sides are hunkered down in seperate rooms, with government negotiator Mark Brown going back and forth as they try to reach an agreement.
While there appeared to be no movement yesterday, a man who is part of the negotiations told CKNW they would be staying put until a deal is made.
If that doesn’t happen, teachers will go on a full-scale strike starting Tuesday.
Monday is set to be a “study session” with no classes and no picketing.
We will continue to bring you the very latest on this developing story.
