The board of directors and the teacher have the same goal – the best possible training for all students.

There may be different perspectives on how to achieve this goal. The solution to the problem is to reach an agreement that puts children first and does good for both sides. The Southwest School Division negotiated employment contracts with a number of workers` groups. Links to copies of the agreements and related information follow below. The union and the government reached an interim agreement on 22 April. The agreement is retroactive to September 1 last year and runs until August 31, 2023. The Education Act 1995 allows for additional issues to be negotiated at the provincial and local levels, if both parties agree. Each party has the right to refuse to negotiate an additional case. Local agreements must not contain important provisions for provincial negotiations and no agreement may include provisions for teacher selection, curriculum, curriculum or professional methods and techniques.

Saskatchewan teachers have ratified a new contract with the provincial government. Collective bargaining is a major responsibility of school boards, both under the 1995 Education Act and in the Trade Union Act.

In addition, an agreement under the 2000-2002 national collective agreement established a committee to review good practice and dispute resolution. The Joint Commission on Good Practice and Dispute Resolution published a report in December 2002. In the report, the committee made a number of specific recommendations for stakeholder reflection. “The adoption of this agreement does not signal that teachers` concerns have been addressed,” STF President Patrick Maze said in the statement.
