Negotiations between teachers and province going nowhere fast as mediator turns job down

  • Jul. 2, 2014 6:00 p.m.

Further negotiations between the BC teachers union and the province do not appear to be on the horizon after an announcement on July 2 that the mediator  chosen by both parties declined the job. The statement read:

In a joint statement issued on Wednesday, it was stated: “The BC  Public School Employers Association and the BC Teachers Federation   agreed that Mr. Justice Kelleher would be an acceptable mediator.

He had some exploratory discussions with the parties and determined that mediation is not indicated at this time. The parties appreciate the Supreme Court making him available.”
