Despite 34 per cent of teachers voting against the proposal, members of the Saskatchewan Teachers Federation have ratified a provincial collective bargaining agreement for 2010-2013.
Earlier today the STF announced teachers voted 66 per cent in favour of the bargaining agreement during a province wide vote on Sept. 20.
A formal signing of the agreement will be held next week.
As teachers had been without a contract since Aug. 2010, teachers will also receive retroactive pay to Sept. 1, 2010.
The new agreement contains salary increases based on the recommendations of a Special Mediator’s Report released on July 6 by mediator Richard Hornung. Details of the agreement will be formally detailed next week.
