Premier Christy Clark said Friday a tentative deal has been reached with a union representing thousands of government workers.
She said in a speech at the Union of B.C. Municipalities convention that the BCGEU agreement means public-sector employees have been treated fairly and taxpayers have been protected.
CBC has reported that government workers will get a four per cent increase over two years.
Clark also committed to funding for expansion of the TransCanada Highway.
"We will accelerate our efforts to complete the four-laning of the Trans-Canada highway between Kamloops and the Alberta border."
She also gave her support to an area mine.
"We believe in Yellowhead Mines in the North Thompson and they will get their power."
New money was announced for school expansions across B.C., but Kamloops was not on the list.
Clark also announced the government’s plans to replace the aging George Massey Tunnel south of Vancouver.
And she says she’ll be meeting with Alberta Premier Alison Redford on Monday and tell her that if B.C.’s conditions for building the Northern Gateway pipeline aren’t met, the project will not be built.
