The Quebec government and one of the province’s largest teachers’ labour federations have reached an agreement-in-principle on non-monetary issues in their current dispute.
The Fédération des syndicats de l’enseignement (FSE) was negotiating alongside the Quebec Provincial Association of Teachers (QPAT), which represents about 8,000 teachers who work in the province’s English-language school boards.
“It’s a good settlement. It’s reasonable,” said Richard Goldfinch, president of QPAT. “It actually brings some lightening of the teacher workload,”
Goldfinch said the association’s leadership will recommend that its members accept the deal.
