General Membership Approves Parameters for Bargaining Proposal

On Wednesday March 31, 2004 the teachers assembled at the Unit General Meeting in Kemptville reviewed and discussed the parameters of the teachers proposal for the upcoming round of negotiations. These were amended by addition to address concerns with respect to Core French teachers, compassionate leave, preparation time and special needs students. The Executive was empowered to give final approval to the Teachers Proposal.

There will be a regular update for members regarding negotiations – Eastern Bargaining Update – which will sent out through the Unit Office as we enter into talks with the school board. This update will be sent out to schools and will be posted on our unit website.

OECTA Summer Courses

Once again this year, OECTA Provincial is offering a number of summer courses designed by teachers for teachers. Last year there was a very positive response to the various courses offered by OECTA.

Attached you will find a list of course offerings and a school response form. An outline and course description for each course is available on our OECTA unit website – www.easternoecta.ca .

We are asking staff reps to make teachers aware of the summer course program and to complete and return the form to the unit office by fax. Unit Fax – 613-258-0842.
