A tentative agreement was reached between the K-12 Provincial Bargaining Council (PBC) and the BC Public School Employers’ Association (BCPSEA) late Wednesday evening on a provincial framework agreement for K-12 support staff.
“I would like to thank all the members of 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 led 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.
