Collective Bargaining

Collective Bargaining

Collective Bargaining is what establishes your Collective Agreement, the document that outlines a teacher’s salary, benefits, working conditions, sick leave, vacation, protection from arbitrary discipline, and much more.

All members are urged to engage and get involved in the bargaining process.
