Over 3,000 school board workers in rural Nova Scotia have a new tentative agreement.  It was reached Sunday evening in a ‘lead table’ format between the Annapolis Valley Regional School Board and the Department of Education.

No details can be released until ratification votes are held next week, but the Nova Scotia School Board Council of Unions is recommending acceptance of the deal, after successfully resolving the main issue of receiving the same wage increases in 2009 as teachers and other workers in the sector.

CUPE school board workers moved to a provincial bargaining model as a result of a strike waged in 2005 by members of Local 5050, employees with the Cape Breton-Victoria Regional School Board.
