Ontario intends to introduce the School Boards Collective Bargaining Act, that if passed, would establish a clear process for addressing key issues and define the roles and responsibilities of all parties for future labour negotiations in the province's education sector.
The proposed model would feature a central bargaining table where key issues with province-wide impacts, such as pay and benefits, would be negotiated. Local bargaining would also occur where school boards and local federations/unions would negotiate local issues.
Strengthening labour negotiations through more fair and effective bargaining is part of the Ontario government's economic plan to invest in people and ensure everyone has the benefit of a world class education.
