You should have received the following message from Stratcom on behalf of ETFO. At the bottom of your email, there is a personal link for you to take the survey.
Our collective agreements will expire on August 31, 2019, and to prepare for this round of bargaining our work begins today.
ETFO’s goal in every bargaining round is to negotiate strong collective agreements that improve the professional and personal lives of every member. To do that, ETFO needs to know what is important to you and we are asking for your participation in an online survey. This survey will be open until November 21, so please complete it before then.
The purpose of this online survey is to understand what your priorities are for central (provincial) bargaining. This is your opportunity to have a direct and democratic say in our next round of negotiations with the Ontario government, and the Ontario Public School Boards’ Association (for Teachers and Occasional Teachers), and the Council of Trustees’ Association (for Designated Early Childhood Educators, Educational Support Personnel, Professional Support Personnel and other education worker members of ETFO).
NOTE: This school year, you will also receive a survey from your ETFO local to provide input on local bargaining priorities.
By completing this survey, which should take you approximately 10 – 15 minutes, you will help determine what ETFO’s central priorities should be for the next round of bargaining.
Your responses are anonymous. ETFO will receive the survey results in aggregate tabular form only, meaning that your individual responses will remain anonymous and will not be reported back to ETFO provincial or your local. Only a small team of professional researchers at Stratcom will have access to individual responses. Stratcom, an independent organization overseeing the survey, is bound by federal privacy rules, regulations and standards imposed by Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act (PIPEDA) and the Market Research Industry Association (MRIA).
Thank you in advance for your participation, your voice and views matter to ETFO.
Together we can continue to defend public education and the rights and benefits in our collective agreement.
