B.C.’s striking teachers are expected to vote Thursday, Sept.18 on a tentative settlement with the provincial government.

Mediator Vince Ready announced the agreement early Tuesday morning, after five days of talks at a Richmond hotel. The B.C. Teachers’ Federation and the province’s negotiators agreed to withhold details until they have a final document to present, he said.

 

Education Minister Peter Fassbender has said a plan will be developed to make up missed instructional days, which could involve rescheduling Christmas and spring break.
