We are all waiting for word. BC teachers’ negotiators and government negotiators met throughout the weekend and Sunday night. Both sides would like to avoid the full-scale strike scheduled for Tuesday. As far as anyone knows now, the school year is over. Students and teachers removed their personal belongings from schools last week and bid one another hasty goodbyes.

If these two sides can agree on a formula that satisfies both, the school year could still finish out in an almost normal manner. Currently, both sides are quiet about the bargaining process. I hope for everyone’s sakes that this marathon can end.

While the strike officially begins tomorrow, schools are empty today as well because the BCTF called for an all day Monday Study Day, ostensibly purposed to either examine and settling on a contract proposal that might have come out of the weekend or working on a revised bargaining package.
