Bargaining Update: Tentative Agreement Reached


After a long and challenging round of bargaining, I am pleased to announce that a tentative agreement has been reached between the Avon Maitland Teachers’ Local and the Avon Maitland District School Board.
A virtual meeting will be held on Monday, April 15 at 5pm to share the details of the new tentative agreement.  The ratification vote will take place during the meeting.
Members will need to register to attend the meeting and to vote.  Please register at the following link:
I wish to thank the members of our Collective Bargaining Committee: Darrell Uhler, Drew Macaulay, Lindsay O’Reilly, Stephanie McArthur, and Tim Barton, for their hard work on behalf of members.  I also wish to thank our ETFO CB Liaison, Gail Bannister-Clarke, for her time and dedication to the members of the Avon Maitland Teachers’ Local.
In the “Members Only” section of the website, there is a slide show highlighting all of the proposed collective bargaining changes in our agreement.
