Provincial Bargaining to Continue Over the Summer
The OECTA Provincial Bargaining Team (PBT) has met three times throughout June with representatives of the Government of Ontario and the bargaining team representing all Catholic school boards, to continue negotiations for the renewal of the central terms of our collective agreement. The talks continue to be respectful but very little progress is being made.
While schools close for the summer holidays, the Association will continue to bargain over the coming months with two dates secured in July and three dates in August. Additionally, the matters before the Ontario Labour Relations Board (OLRB) related to the “scope” of central bargaining and the “bad faith bargaining” complaint filed by the Association will be heard in the coming weeks – the results of which will hopefully help bargaining progress forward over the summer months.
We wish you a restful summer break, but encourage you to continue to check your personal email address
for important bargaining updates.
