Tdsb Collective Agreement

by on Apr.13, 2021, under Uncategorized

The framework of collective agreements for the education sector includes a two-stage negotiation process involving centralised and local negotiations. Centralized negotiations generally include important monetary and political issues (e.g. B compensation, benefits and paid resignations), whereas local negotiations generally do not concern monetary issues or specific matters to the local board of directors. In the education sector, employee representatives (represented by unions), employers (represented by trust associations) and the crown (represented by the Ontario government) are represented by the Collective Education Act. Ontario`s education collective agreements ended on August 31, 2019. However, under the Labour Relations Act, these agreements remain in effect beyond their expiry date until a new contract or parties are in a legal strike/lockout position. The parties are legally obliged to meet and negotiate in good faith. This means that each party must make every reasonable effort to reach a collective agreement.

The Ontario government, as a promoter of education in Ontario, is also involved in central negotiations. A lockout is the fact that an employer closes a job, suspends work or refuses to continue hiring a certain number of workers during a labour dispute. As in the case of a strike, written notification, in this case by the employers` bargaining agency, must be filed at least five days before the start of the lockout. There are things to do to strike or block: at any time after the start of negotiations, any party can ask for conciliation. During conciliation, the Ministry of Labour is asked to ask a conciliation mediator to meet with the parties and help them reach an agreement. SCHOOL BASED STAFF INFO – TDSB Document Read More A strike is a work stoppage, job refusal or retention, a slowdown or other concerted activity on the part of employees who aim to limit or limit their work. A strike by education workers is any act or activity of education workers that must have the effect of restricting, restricting or impinging on the normal activities of the board of directors or its staff; How schools or programs work or function and the provision of education workers in accordance with the Education Act; or a regulation, including the revocation of services. CENTRAL ADMIN – COVID-19 Work From Home Protocol March 2020 – TDSB Read More For local negotiations, TDSB will negotiate with its nine local bargaining units. These include groups represented by the Ontario Elementary Teachers` Federation (ETFO), the Ontario Secondary School Teachers` Federation (OSSTF), the Canadian Union of Public Workers (CUPE) and the Worker Maintenance, Construction and Trade Council (MCSTC).

If conciliation fails, the Minister of Labour may issue a notification informing the parties that it is not advisable to appoint a conciliation committee. This is called the no board report. Once a noboard report is published, parties may not legally strike or suspend until the 17th day following the publication of the no board report. In addition, the collective agency must notify the strike in writing at least five days before the start of the strike and indicate the start of the strike.
