This just in from our Provincial Bargaining team:

“We are pleased to advise that we have reached a tentative agreement with the Crown and Council of Trustee Associations (CTA). We are calling a halt to the work-to-rule job action as of now.

Details of the tentative agreement and the ratification process will be shared with you as soon as possible.”

We have been directed that Work to Rule is to end immediately!!! WOOHOO!!!!!! This is great news!!!

Thank you to everyone for all of your hard work and sacrifice. I know it was a struggle. It did make a difference at the Central Bargaining table.

I met with HR to go over ways to improve re-integration and catching up of the undone work due to Work to Rule. The expectation of the board is not that we will be back to normal immediately. A specific protocol is being drafted by HR and will be communicated by supervisors tomorrow. It will focus on a gradual return to normal, hopefully within a couple of weeks…

And now on to Local Bargaining….
