Collective Bargaining

Bargaining Consultations and Preparation

Teacher voice is critical to the bargaining process, and the Federation has been preparing for this round of bargaining since the last round ended by working with members from across the province. This past year the STF completed the member consultation process, connecting with members more than 9,000 times. This directly informed the teachers’ proposal package.

Following the unanimous approval of the teachers’ proposal package at the Annual Meeting of Council in late April, the Teachers’ Bargaining Committee sent the formal signed letter to the Government-Trustee Bargaining Committee on May 3 to open provincial collective bargaining, pursuant to Section 234(1) of The Education Act, 1995. The following day, May 4, initial meeting dates were established starting May 24 and 25, and will continue throughout the summer months.

The Federation has appointed the following members to the Teachers’ Bargaining Committee:

  • Bobbi Taillefer, Chairperson and STF Executive Director
  • Samantha Becotte, STF President
  • Nathan Bromm, STF Vice-President
  • Gwen Paul, STF Executive Member
  • Angela Banda, STF Associate Executive Director
  • Neal Boutin, STF Executive Member *alternate
