Could teachers contract dispute be settled Monday?

Public schools across B.C are closed Monday as teachers convene for a province-wide “study session”. 

Teachers are set to begin a full scale strike Tuesday after last week’s union vote saw 86% of those who cast a ballot supported escalating job action.

The BC Teachers Federation and the Province bargained throughout the weekend under a media blackout.

On Friday, BCTF President Jim Iker said they had tendered a new bargaining package and wage proposal.

Iker said teachers would either be looking at a revised bargaining package during the study session on Monday, or a contract settlement.
