Currently, our OTBU negotiations table team is working on a new contract with the Board. A lot of new members do not realize that we have a separate contract from the TBU (Teachers' Bargaining Unit). They are also in negotiations, and have indicated the possibility of impending sanctions.
We have been informed by Provincial Office that we will not be engaging in these sanctions if they do indeed take place (again, since we are a separate bargaining unit). Therefore, it will remain business as usual for all LTOs and casual OTs at your worksites.
We will keep you updated by mass email once we know more.
