The ATA’s Central Table Bargaining Committee (CTBC) met Feb. 14 with the Teachers’ Employer Bargaining Association (TEBA) to continue central table bargaining that has been ongoing since the fall.
In the latest Bargainer’s Blog, which is posted on the ATA’s website, bargaining committee member Murray Lalonde writes that the tone at the bargaining table continues to be positive. He also notes that this most recent meeting allowed for CTBC members to share the realities that teachers are facing in their classrooms.
Sick leave was a focus of the discussions and the CTBC tabled a number of proposals on this topic. These positions were authorized by Provincial Executive Council as part of the initial proposal.
“We are releasing updated versions of the initial proposal as specific items are tabled, and I am pleased to share this most recent update with you now,” Lalonde writes.
A number of additional meeting dates have been scheduled with TEBA.
“We will certainly make sure to update members, when and where we can, as our conversations continue,” Lalonde says.
Members can see addendums to the initial proposal on the Association website, in the Bargaining Update section of the Member’s Only area. Teachers are also encouraged to reach out to their local Teacher Welfare Committee member if they have questions. ❚
