Travel to Convention on Winter Roads

Teachers’ convention season is starting off colder and snowier than usual. Please plan to travel safely to your teachers’ convention.

If you are not able to make it to your assigned convention, your collective agreement may include impassable roads or inclement weather clauses that could be accessed. If your collective agreement does not include language specific to road conditions or weather, you may be able to make use of the personal leave clauses in your agreement. The use of any of these types of leave may require teachers to pay substitute costs, forego a portion of their salary and benefits, or report to their school or another work location in their district. Please refer to your collective agreement for more information.

If you need help interpreting your collective agreement, please contact the Association’s Teacher Welfare Duty Officer at 1-800-232-7208 or 780-447-9400.
