BCPSEA, representing the province's 60 public boards of education, and the BC Teachers' Federation, representing BC's public school teachers, commenced collective bargaining for a renewed Provincial Collective Agreement (PCA) on February 19, 2019. The current PCA expired on June 30, 2019.

In an effort to move the parties toward meaningful and productive discussions, BCPSEA applied to the Labour Relations Board to appoint a mediator and the BCTF agreed to participate in mediation.

The parties met with the assistance of the mediator on five dates in July and will resume meeting on August 21 with further dates set for August 22, and 23, and the week of August 26.

The mediator requested - and BCPSEA is respecting - a media blackout while the mediation process is underway.
