The Saskatchewan Teachers’ Federation (STF) is now resuming its collective bargaining discussions after Education Minister Bronwyn Eyre approved the appointments of members to sit on the Educational Relations Board at Wednesday’s Cabinet meeting.
Earlier Wednesday, STF had suspended their contract talks because of “continued delays in appointing new members.”
STF’s executive director, Randy Schmaltz, thanked the minister for ratifying their nominations.
“This clears the way for a resumption of bargaining for our members,” he said.
“We look forward to many future opportunities to work together with the Minister and her officials on policies that improve the lives of Saskatchewan students and teaching professionals.”
The STF was prepared to take the government to court in this matter.
The application to the courts was made on October 2 and was scheduled to be heard by the Court of Queen’s Bench in Saskatoon on October 24.
