“Education is a priority and we do not want to see a disruption in classrooms across the province,” said Education Minister Karen Casey in a news release on Thursday. “We have said all along we will listen and work to address teachers’ concerns.”

Casey’s negotiation team asked a conciliator to help resolve the contract dispute. Conciliation officer Jarrod Baboushkin contacted the NSTU Thursday morning to invite the two sides together again and the NSTU accepted the offer Thursday afternoon.
