As you know, our Collective Agreement expires on August 31. Both ETFO and ETT have begun the process of working towards a new Collective Agreement. Centrally, ETFO has served notice to bargain and has a first date next week to meet with the Ontario Public School Boards’ Association (OPSBA) and Provincial Government to negotiate the list of Central bargaining issues. For the list of your central bargaining goals ETFO is putting forward, click here.
In ETT, we are working hard to be ready for bargaining and are writing our Preliminary Submission (our list of proposals) based on the information that you, our members, have shared with us in our local survey and through other means. We are excited to begin bargaining for what students and teachers need, and the conditions to ensure the best start possible in September and beyond.
