The proposed agreement is for four years. If ratified, the new agreement would be effective from September 1, 2019 to August 31, 2023.
The proposed agreement includes:
- Salary increases of zero percent in 2019, two percent in 2020, two percent in 2021 and two percent in 2022.
- Increases to allowances for principals, vice-principals and assistant principals of zero percent in 2019, two percent in 2020, two percent in 2021 and two percent in 2022.
- At the beginning of each school year, all school boards will provide the SaskatchewanTeachers’ Federation with contact information of all approved substitute teachers. Any changes are to be reported to the STF monthly.
The proposed settlement does not fully address all items the Teachers’ Bargaining Committee sought resolution on in this round of bargaining. Given the uncertainty caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, the TBC felt it was necessary for members to vote on this offer.
The Federation remains committed to solving class size and composition through ongoing advocacy and participation on a new class complexity committee. More information on the new committee is available. The Federation will conduct an electronic vote in late May. Exact dates and details will be provided to members soon.
