September 28, 2018

RICHMOND — The K-12 Presidents Council voted this week to recommend the provincial framework agreement negotiated with the BC Public School Employers’ Association (BCPSEA) in mid-July. Support staff locals will table the provincial framework agreement with their proposals in bargaining with their respective school districts.

“I’d like to thank the provincial bargaining committee for their hard work and dedication that helped us reach this agreement,” said K-12 Presidents Council President Warren Williams. “Support workers in K-12 provide services that students in B.C. schools rely on every day.”

The agreement includes benefit increases and language that helps address workplace issues and includes support for local bargaining.

The current K-12 agreement expires on June 30, 2019. When ratified by Support staff locals and school districts, the provincial agreement will be in effect from July 1, 2019 to June 30, 2022.
