Negotiations for a new provincial collective agreement will resume today and Thursday in Saskatoon.

The previous agreement was proposed back in April, with teachers voting on that and rejecting it with a wide majority last week.

The Teachers’ Bargaining Committee and Government-Trustee Bargaining Committee have agreed to return to the bargaining table following discussions held Monday and Tuesday between the chairpersons of the respective committees.

Updates on those negotiations will be provided when appropriate.

Beginning this morning and continuing until Thursday at 6 p.m., teachers will also be voting on providing the STF Executive with a mandate to implement sanctions beyond the current school year.

The existing sanctions mandate expires June 30, 2024. A media release will be distributed Thursday once voting is complete and members have been notified of the result.
