September 28, 2018: We are pleased to advise that on September 25, 2018, the Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE) K-12 Presidents' Council, along with representatives of the K-12 public education sector's other support staff unions, endorsed the Provincial Framework Agreement (PFA) achieved on July 12, 2018. The BCPSEA Board of Directors endorsed the PFA at their meeting this afternoon.

These endorsements now pave the way for school districts and support staff unions to commence local bargaining - the current collective agreements expire June 30, 2019. Inclusion of the PFA in the local collective agreement is voluntary on the part of the local school district and their local union and, if included and ratified as part of the local agreement, will be in effect from July 1, 2019 to June 30, 2022.

"This framework agreement shows that with hard work, a commitment to give and take, and a strong, respectful working relationship, successful negotiations are possible," said Alan Chell, BCPSEA Board Chair.
