REGINA — Saskatchewan teachers have overwhelmingly rejected a tentative agreement reached with government, but the Saskatchewan Teachers Federation has high hopes contract negotiations won’t disintegrate like they did in 2011.
In the spring of that year, schools shut down for three days after teachers across the province walked off the job.
Teachers voted on a new collective agreement in October, with just over 12,400 ballots cast.
Seventy-three per cent voted against the proposed deal, which would have resulted in a 5.5-per-cent pay rise over four years and additional one-time payments in the first two years.
The vote count took place on Friday, November 22, 2013 at 1:00pm. The successful candidates are as follows.
