Provincial Bargaining Update-Second Tentative Deal Reached with BCPSEA

A tentative agreement was reached between the K-12 Provincial Bargaining Committee (“PBC”) and the BC Public School Employers’ Association late Wednesday evening on a provincial framework agreement for K-12 support staff.

“I would like to thank all the members of the PBC for their hard work and perseverance,” said K-12 Presidents’ Council President Warren Williams. “Their professionalism, willingness to work together, and dedication to members in K-12 lead to reaching this tentative agreement.”

Details on the tentative agreement will not be made public until the K-12 Presidents’ Council has the opportunity to meet and review them. If recommended and passed by the K-12 Presidents’ Council, the tentative agreement will form part of local bargaining proposals when locals begin bargaining with their respective districts.

Local 963 Business Manager, Tim De Vivo, is a member of the Provincial Bargaining Committee.
