    Burns Lake teacher Jim Iker acclaimed new leader of B.C. Teacher's Federation

    VANCOUVER - The new leader of the BC Teachers' Federation is 60-year-old Jim Iker, a kindergarten and primary teacher from Burns Lake, B.C.

    Iker was acclaimed Monday night at the union's annual general meeting in Vancouver.

    He has just completed a three-year term as the first vice president of the 41,000-member teacher's union and officially takes over from retiring BCTF president Susan Lambert on July 1.

    Iker says a key objective during his term is reaching a fair collective agreement that restores class-size and class-composition guarantees.

    Acclaimed to the position of first vice-president is Vancouver teacher Glen Hansman, who currently serves as the union's second vice-president.

    Delegates also elected Quesnel teacher Teri Mooring as second vice-president.
