On Tuesday evening, the TVDSB Foundation Board voted and approved the agreement. Last week, members of the Ontario Elementary Teachers` Federation (ETFO) Thames Valley Teacher Local voted to adopt the preliminary agreement. “Our goal of local bargaining was to negotiate a fair collective agreement that would address working conditions issues through free collective bargaining,” said Craig Smith, President of ETFO Thames Valley Teacher Local. On June 4, ETFO Thames Valley Teacher Local and TVDSB agreed on an interim local agreement and signed the Settlement Protocol on June 5. Teachers at the local primary school vote on strike. And now? Send us an email and we`ll contact you soon, or we`ll call you Monday to Friday between 8 a.m. and 6 p.m. — we`d love to talk. The union says there are five local bargaining dates with TVDSB and that they will continue to inform their members of the progress made. LONDON, HAVE. — Teachers from the Thames Valley District School Board (TVDSB) have a new contract. The strike vote allows the union to leave teachers` work when discussions break out at the bargaining table. In recent years, a campaign of work-to-rule campaigns has been launched before a strike.
The Elementary Teachers` Federation of Ontario (ETFO) held a local strike vote Thursday night in Budweiser Gardens, where about 3,000 members voted. The count revealed that 97% are in force to strike at the local level. To say that this fall`s staffing courses were a challenge for TVDSB staff is certainly an understatement. New announcements and additional government dollars have prompted the board to reorganize permanent teacher tasks several times over the past few weeks and this Shuffle, is deferring and reorganizing many long-term fundamentals.
