Currently, approximately 300,000 public sector employees – 90% – are covered by preliminary or ratified agreements concluded as part of B.C`s mandate to negotiate sustainable services. In a press release, the government of the bc stated that members of the BCPSEA (BCPSEA) and the BC Teachers` Federation (BCTF) have ratified an agreement under the government`s negotiating mandate for sustainable services. The collective agreement between the British Columbia Teachers` Federation (BCTF), which represents public school teachers in the province, and BCPSEA (BCPSEA), which represents the 60 public teaching bodies, expired on June 30, 2019. The agreement was voted online over a three-day period, as current events prohibit teachers from meeting in local schools or district offices. The agreement, negotiated with the assistance of a mediator, includes: BCPSEA manages the three stages of the collective bargaining process of the public teacher employer (school district) – preparation, negotiation and implementation/administration. The agreement affects more than 45,000 teachers, represented by the BCTF, who provide education to students in the province`s 60 school districts. In February 2007, the province received Vince Ready`s final report on BC teacher collective bargaining. Vince Ready, a member of the Industrial Inquiry Commission, was appointed in October 2005 to review collective bargaining between the B.C. Public School Employers` Association and the B.C. This review was made in response to Commissioner Don Wright`s previous report on the teacher collective bargaining system. After the vote, the new collective agreement was adopted by teachers by a margin of 98 per cent. The mandate focuses on improving services to individuals and ensuring fair and affordable compensation.
