BC Teachers Federation set to unveil first proposals

The BC Teachers Federation and the BC Public School Employers’ Association will likely be exchanging first proposals on Tuesday, after about one month of contract talks. Proposals were originally set to be exchanged on March 1st.

BCTF president Susan Lambert says objective packages have been exchanged, “Which are the general goals or the general outline of the kind of direction of each party.”

Lambert says teachers want some improvements in working conditions.

She says they also want a fair salary increase.

What has BCPSEA given in terms of objectives?

Lambert says they’re basically saying they’re pursuing government policy objectives at the bargaining table.  

The goal is to get a deal done by the end of June.
