Collective Agreement Oecta
You have access to complementary health and dental care as well as long-term disability and life insurance as part of your collective agreement. These arrangements are negotiated on site and may vary from one board of directors to another. On Thursday, March 12, 2020, the Ontario Association of Catholic Teachers (OECTA), the Ontario Catholic School Trustees` Association (OCSTA) and the Government of Ontario reached an interim collective agreement. As a result, the OECD suspended all strike activities until the agreement was ratified. On September 25, 2015, members ratified a new Memorandum of Regulation (MOU) that complements the provincial portion of your collective agreement. Subsequently, local units began to negotiate the local component of their collective agreement. The ratification of the local components takes place at different times specific to each unit. Register in the membership area to access your local collective agreement. If you have any questions about the provision of services by your board of directors, speak to the association`s representative in your school or call your local office. Since the adoption of the School Authorities Collective Bargaining Act of 2014, negotiations have taken place at both the provincial and local levels, leading to a provincial agreement applicable to all members and specific local agreements to members of each local unit. A comprehensive collective agreement covers both parties. Ontario`s Labour Relations Act provides for the reconciliation of complaints arising from the application, interpretation or violation of the collective agreement.
If you have reason to believe that your collective agreement has not been applied, interpreted or managed in accordance with its terms, you must immediately contact the association`s representative in your school, your unit`s complaints officer or the provincial office. Complaints are the mechanism used by oecTA to ensure that employers respect and implement the provisions of the agreement that govern members` wages, benefits and working conditions. . Their rights also include harassment, physical and psychological abuse, harassment, discrimination and more. We`ve put together a number of resources that will help you understand your health and safety rights in the workplace. . The association strives to ensure that you are safe and protected in your workplace, that boards of directors comply with legislation in all schools, that laws governing health and safety in the province are constantly strengthened, and that all members are aware of their rights and receive the information to which they are legally entitled.
