In 2003, your BCTA negotiations team had an opportunity to secure a share of teacher-generated funds.
The BCTA negotiated share of MAA funds has always been intended as a support, in recognition that teachers spend a significant amount of personal funds to offer their students the best opportunities possible. The funds were negotiated with the specific goal, reflected in our contract, of supporting the continued professional growth of teachers. This allows us to continue to offer high quality programs to our students.
BCTA is aware that budgets at work and home are tight. The BCTA board voted to increase each member’s share this year to help make up that gap. Look for a letter with detailed instructions for the MAA procedures in late September.
