School Cleanliness
A number of teachers have called expressing concern about school cleanliness issues in the absence of a custodian. When this issue was raised with Board Administration the response was clear: Teachers should not do the work of a custodian. If any teacher has a concern, talk to your principal – there are strategies in place in the case of emergencies to ensure your classrooms and schools are clean. 

Please contact the Unit Office if you have any further questions or concerns about this issue.

Become a Committee Member
There are a number of unit committees which will work for our members to provide programmes or represent their interests.  We encourage teachers to join a committee – it is a great opportunity to meet teachers from around the Board and to work for your colleagues.

Unit Committees include:

  • Beginning Teachers
  • Collective Bargaining
  • Communications
  • Social Justice
  • Professional Development

If you are interested in joining a unit committee, please call the Unit office.
