Collective Bargaining Background
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. The authority, processes and dispute resolution mechanisms that guide provincial collective bargaining in education are set out in Sections 234 to 269 of The Education Act, 1995.
To support understanding and to provide historical context regarding teacher collective bargaining, video and resources are provided below. The information is available to anyone, and individuals are encouraged to review the resources and engage in learning about the importance of collective bargaining. Follow-up questions can be directed to the Federation at firstname.lastname@example.org .
