The current collective agreement expired on August 31, 2012. As a result of the Ontario government`s actions in passing Bill 115, the Putting Students First Act, new working conditions have been introduced that are not included in the collective agreement. In addition, no new agreements were reached on site with the county school office. The result is a great deal of confusion among members regarding different aspects of the relationship with the employer. If you have any questions about your job, please contact the district office for clarification. The collective agreement is the contract ratified by 15 OSSTF District 15 members in the Professional Student Services Personnel (PSSP) Bargaining Unit and the Trillium Lakelands District School Board, which defines the rights and obligations of each employment relationship party. Like all collective agreements, it is the result of coordinated and concerted actions through collective bargaining and requires constant maintenance. Teachers` salaries are separate; the current grid is September 2017. With the transition to central and local collective bargaining, our collective agreement is now in many parts. The central and local collective agreements together constitute completely new conditions.
In addition to these documents, there is now the prorogation agreement and the remediation agreement of Law 115. We are working to put them together to create a document, but it is a moving target. The competency allowance has also been increased. The new allowance is mentioned below of the September 2017 liability allowance. The local collective agreement (part B) was negotiated by your local negotiators. The document is in draft form, although it is complete, and contains all the amendments from 2012 to today, as the Board of Directors and the Union have not officially approved the document. In the future, the central and local agreements will be somehow merged into a single document, but because of the victory in Call Bill 115, we have delayed the conclusion of the merger. Because of the victory, there may be changes. There is a central collective agreement that contains the Settlement Protocol (MoS), the Memorandum of Understanding (MoA) and the articles. The Central Collective Agreement (Part A) was negotiated by our provincial representatives, OPSBA and the Department of Education.
