The school department`s annual contribution must be four times the maximum salary for Class 7 teachers – $104,791 in 2018. All unused credits may be deferred until the end of the year to the following year. See the full 2014-2018 collective agreement or choose the view sections of the collective agreement below: the Louis-Riel School Division and its teachers` union have negotiated a new collective agreement that could set a precedent for other Manitoba school divisions. Teachers are encouraged to make medical appointments outside school hours if possible. If this is not possible, they are asked to minimize their long-term a- and a-mann time. The school department considered this “all new country,” the decision said, and that “the proposed new article would fundamentally change the educational offer and was totally unacceptable.” “The Board of Directors will not issue an arbitration award on this matter, but it expects the parties to have a serious discussion ahead of future collective bargaining,” he said. The collective agreement between the LRSD and its teachers expired on June 30, 2018. Early negotiations didn`t go anywhere, so both sides had to go through arbitration – a process that lasts several months, Bedford said. The premium retroactively increases wages between July 1, 2018 and June 30, 2020 – an increase of 1.6% last year and a 1.4% increase for the current school year. We will continue to insist that all employers and public sector unions conduct constructive collective bargaining and that they have no intention of enacting the bill at this stage. “Many public sector collective agreements have already been concluded and will be reached under future economic conditions,” a provincial spokesperson said in an email Thursday. The Louis Riel School Division is the first of Manitoba`s 38 school divisions to conclude collective bargaining. The Pembina Trails school division had to delay negotiations because of the pandemic. Fixed-term contracts can only be used to replace teachers on leave, teachers who terminate their employment during the school year “due to unforeseen circumstances” or “to supplement teaching resources for less than three months,” the new agreement states.
“I think it`s a good decision for Manitobans, frankly, but definitely for Manitoba teachers,” Bedford said. “One of the strengths for Manitoba teachers is that we attract highly trained, highly skilled and motivated people who teach in Manitoba`s public schools. The agreement is a legally binding employment contract concluded through collective bargaining with the employer and the union. Nicholas Frew is an online journalist for CBC News.
