We will be having our
Annual General Meeting
on May 28 at 4:30 pm
in the Ballroom (part of it, actually) of the Victoria Inn.
ETFO and the Public School Boards Association have reached a deal. Now the real work begins. Previously scheduled strike votes are on hold. Every teacher local in the province must have an agreement by April 24, 2009. The agreement will be for four years and will contain raises retroactive to September 1, 2008.
Occasional teachers will receive the same raises as contract teachers. In 2009-10 there will be an additional 3.5% available for occasional teacher contracts. There are a number of working conditions that must be discussed during this round of negotiations, but there is no requirement that there be an agreement on them.
We have updated our site to make it easier to post to. The most current information will always appear at the top of this page. Don’t forget to check out the executive page and the events page. More special pages will be added as we go along. In the coming weeks we hope to enable a new feature that will allow you to sign up to receive an email when something new is posted. You will need to check back often until then.
