Nb Teachers Agreement
Posted on December 13, 2020
A joint initiative by both parties is also being considered as part of the agreement, which calls for 17 schools to participate in a research project. “250 teachers will be B contract teachers in schools to help make the classroom,” said Guy Arseneault. “This has been a big topic in our schools in recent years.” “Where teachers can go, it`s the schools that decide,” Gallant said. “This will allow us to have the children who need more support, the support they need.” The provincial government and the New Brunswick Federation of Teachers have ratified a five-year contract that hires 250 teachers in the province. The agreement includes annual salary increases of one per cent, but additional assistance in the form of 250 school teachers to help classroom teachers and work with students is a highlight for the NBTF, which has long raised the challenge of classroom composition.

The research project will last three years and will be evaluated by independent experts.
