Teacher Talk Legislation Now Law

Legislation to be used in future contract talks with the province's educators is now law.

Final approval of Bill 122 came yesterday at Queen's Park with New Democrat support.

The Liberals says it allows for associations representing school boards to be at the bargaining table with government and unions reps on province-wide issues.

Local bargaining will still continue on all other issues.

Almost all existing collective agreements are to expire at the end of this August.
