Progress has been made at the bargaining table but the Education Minister says there’s a lot of work still to be done before a deal is done with teachers.
Peter Fassbender says the BCTF is looking over the comprehensive package government put forward this past weekend.
He says it includes an increase in wages and what he calls, “realistic and flexible solutions to address class composition.”
He says everyone broke at midnight after what he says were productive sessions.
The BCTF announced President Jim Iker will speak at 10am.
Says Fassbender, “I don’t know what they are going to say. I am not in a position to reveal any of the detals other that I still remain optimistic.”
Teachers are having rallys at their study sessions around the province today.
A full scale strike is set for tomorrow.
