The Teachers’ Bargaining Committee has reached terms of a settlement with the Government-Trustee Bargaining Committee.
“COVID-19’s impact on our communities over the last month has been significant on the education sector, our communities and each of us individually and professionally,” said Patrick Maze, President, Saskatchewan Teachers’ Federation. “While the proposed settlement does not fully address all items the TBC sought resolution on in this round of bargaining, given the uncertainty caused by the pandemic the TBC felt it was necessary for members to vote on this offer.”

The Government of Saskatchewan is providing $6 million in funding to support the purchase and installation of 15 new relocatable classrooms in seven school divisions throughout the province.
The relocatable classrooms will allow divisions to address growing student enrolment in their schools without undergoing significant renovations or requiring a new school to be built. Relocatable classrooms can be ordered and installed much quicker than a regular build and can be moved to another school with higher enrolment needs if they are not needed anymore.
