Extension Agreement September 2017-August 31, 2019
On February 2, 2017, ETFO, OPSBA, and the government signed an Extension Agreement. In doing so, any collective bargaining locally was effectively curtailed until the fall of 2019.
September 2014 – August 2017: This is the agreement still in force in this school year 2019-20.
In the last round of bargaining, there were 2 levels of bargaining: the Central Table Agreement and the Local Agreement. Bargaining for the Central Table Agreement was between ETFO, the Government, and OPSBA (Ontario Public School Boards’ Association). Items bargained were mostly monetary items which were not allowed to be bargained locally. Because of this, most local bargaining was ineffective and focused on housekeeping issues.
Your Collective Agreement was ratified in November (A. Central) and December (B. Local) of 2015.
