A Collective Agreement is a legally binding document that ensures fairness and uniformity in treating workers in a unionized group. It outlines expectations, rights, pay, benefits, working conditions, and dispute resolution. The agreement favors workers; their union negotiates with the employer for fair treatment. It guarantees a harmonious work
environment where everyone is respected and their needs are met. It prevents workplace mistreatment, exploitation, unequal treatment, and lost benefits.
The K-12 President’s Council bargains for a Provincial Framework Agreement that covers wage increases, benefit improvements, and the amount of money provided to each District for specific spending by the Local. From there, the local bargains with the Employer to come to agreement on the issues at hand, and create the new Collective Agreement.
At this time we are waiting for the finalized version of the 2022-2025 Collective Agreement. It will be shared here as soon as we have the PDF copy of it.
The Previous Collective Agreement can be found here.
