NLTA hammers out tentative deal with government
The government and the Newfoundland and Labrador Teachers' Association have reached a tentative deal, although there is no word on the details of the agreement.
Both the NLTA and Finance Minister Charlene Johnson announced the tentative deal in separate statements on Monday morning.
"The NLTA is pleased to have reached a tentative agreement that is fair and reasonable for both teachers and the employer," union president Jim Dinn said in a statement.
"We look forward to consideration of the details by teachers and ratification of an agreement which will enable us to concentrate on our main job of educating the children and students of this province.”
No details have been released on such elements of the tentative deal as wage increases or pension changes.
Teachers will learn what's in the tentative agreement during branch meetings that will be held when classes resume in September.
A vote on the collective agreement is scheduled for Sept. 25.
