June 30th marks another pivotal day in the ongoing labour war between B.C. teachers and the provincial government.
The provincial government pledged a $1200 signing bonus to teachers if a new collective bargaining agreement was reached before the end of the school year. That offer reportedly expires tomorrow.
The BCTF had also said that if the government didn’t come to the table with new funding by tomorrow, teachers planned on picketing outside summer schools.
The two sides met for negotiations last Thursday and Friday, and their most recent attempts to bring a mediator in hopes of settling the labour struggle have come up short.
