Introduction to Teacher Collective Bargaining in Saskatchewan

Abstract: 

Collective bargaining between groups of employees and employers is a right articulated and protected under the concept of freedom of association, which is recognized in international human rights conventions and in Section 2 (Fundamental Freedoms) of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms.

Collective bargaining enhances the human dignity and liberty of teachers as professionals by providing them a voice and process to influence their employment relationships and environments. Collective bargaining is also intrinsically valuable as an experience in collectivity for members of the teaching profession in Saskatchewan.
