Alberta Teachers Reach Tentative Deal After Tense Negotiations

EDMONTON - It appears that a tentative agreement has been reached between the Alberta government and its teachers

Calgary Public Teachers President Frank Bruseker says he has not seen the details of the deal with the Alberta Teachers Association, but says a news conference is planned for Friday morning.

The development comes after a series of tense, often public negotiations between the government and the union representing the province's 35,000 teachers.

Education Minister Jeff Johnson has declined to comment.
