A tentative agreement has been reached between the Government-Trustee Bargaining Committee and the Saskatchewan Teachers' Federation Bargaining Committee.

The agreement was reached today following a recent round of negotiations. The recent negotiations came after the teachers rejected the Government-Trustee Bargaining Committee’s offer that was brought to the STF membership earlier this month. 

The STF announced on Thursday that 83 per cent of teachers voted 95 per cent in favour of further job action if an agreement could not be struck. 

“I want to thank parents, teachers, and students for their patience during this process,” Education Minister Jeremy Cockrill said in a press release. “I am hopeful that the tentative agreement will be finalized so that predictability is provided to families and teachers.” 

Details of the agreement will be released as ratification draws closer.
