Collective bargaining is the process by which teachers and their employers address issues related to salaries, benefits and working conditions to contribute to quality public education in Saskatchewan. This process is set out in sections 234 to 269 of The Education Act, 1995. The Act also provides a process to be followed if there is an impasse in negotiations, including arbitration.

The Teachers’ Bargaining Committee and the Government-Trustee Bargaining Committee signed the new Provincial Collective Bargaining Agreement on June 17, 2020. The term of the new agreement is September 1, 2019 to August 31, 2023.

The Teachers’ Bargaining Committee will head back to the bargaining table in spring 2023, and we want to hear from STF members to develop priorities for the upcoming round.
