Durham Etfo Collective Agreement

The APSSP represents paraprofessional staff in their employment on the Board of Directors. The current collective agreement between the parties expires on August 31, 2019. On May 10, 2019, the bargaining agent representing the APSSP at the provincial level, in accordance with the Collective Defence Act (SBCBA), the Ontario Workers` Alliance (EWAO), sent its notice of bargaining to the Ontario Catholic Trustees` Association (OCSTA). The parties to the SBCBA are in the process of scheduling a first collective bargaining meeting for their respective central bargaining table on June 19, 2019. Information on professional measures and the expected direct impact on student learning, including the management of the Grade 9 AQA assessment, will be provided as soon as details become available. For more information on the status of the collective bargaining process, see www.dcdsb.ca/collectivebargaining. The Ontario English Catholic Teachers` Association (OCDETA) announced today its intention to start work on Monday, January 13, 2020 in the absence of an agreement. This is part of the legal collective bargaining process. We hope that the negotiations will be concluded as soon as possible. We will continue to monitor the situation and update www.dcdsb.ca/collectivebargaining.
