Osstf York Region Collective Agreement

December 14, 2020

The York Catholic District School Board is very pleased that the provincial negotiating teams and CUPE have negotiated a new collective agreement. That`s why CUPE WILL NOT BE GREAT DEMAIN, MONDAY 7 OCTOBER 2019. Following the provincial negotiations, CUPE YCDSB has indicated that its members will be in a legal strike position from Monday, September 30, 2019. In the event of no agreement at the provincial level by the September 30 deadline, CUPE members will begin legal proceedings on September 30 in the form of sanctions settlement work. The Ontario Secondary School Teachers` Federation (OSSTF) has announced that another one-day walk in some Ontario school boards will take place on Wednesday, January 15, if no agreement is reached. It is important to note that this Walkout has no effect on TDSB. CUPE Local 1571 has announced that it will hold a ratification vote for its members on November 23, 2019. The YCDSB Foundation Board will submit the provisional agreement for ratification at its meeting on 26 November 2019. The Landratsamt OSSTF/FEESO, together with your local bargaining unit, wishes to keep members informed of the collective bargaining process. For members who work for publicly funded school boards and are under the School Management Act (SBCBA), your contracts will expire at the end of August 2019. As we approach negotiations at the provincial and local level, we encourage members to learn more about how the SBCBA negotiation process works and to learn more.

Be sure to know more about the distribution of bargaining slips as we approach the expiry of existing collective agreements. As a Catholic school board, the YCDSB respects collective bargaining and hopes that a freely negotiated agreement will be reached by Sunday. Although we are not involved in centralized negotiations, we are confident that the parties involved would work hard to reach an agreement. The collective agreements for the three YCDSB union partners expired on August 31, 2019. On 8 April 2020, the OECD announced that its members had ratified the agreement on essential terms for a new treaty. The Ontario Public School Boards Association (OPSBA) and the Ontario government have reached a preliminary agreement with the Federation of Secondary Education Teachers (OSSTF) at centralized bargaining tables for casual teachers and teaching workers. OSSTF indicated that the new treaty would be submitted for ratification in May. We understand that a work stoppage can be a concern for students, parents and school communities, and we will ensure that all parties involved are kept informed throughout the process. As a Catholic school board, the YCDSB respects collective bargaining and hopes that a freely negotiated agreement will be reached soon. A preliminary agreement has been reached with CUPE on a new contract and we hope that a new contract can be negotiated with OSSTF and all other school management groups. The York Catholic District School Board (YCDSB) and CUPE Local 2331 have reached an interim agreement. OSSTF has informed OPSBA and the Ontario government that they are requesting a non-board report for OSSTF Education Workers.

This means that OSSTF Education Workers will be in a legal strike position 17 days after the No-Board report is issued if there is no agreement on a new contract. In the spring of 2017, a two-year renewal agreement was ratified by the central parties and, in accordance with the OSSTF Constitution, ratification of accession was necessary. The ratification vote was successful in approrogating the extension agreement and thus changing the central conditions for the 2017-2019 school years. The renewal agreement included the Employee Life and Health Trust (ELHT). OSSTF ELHT is called OSSTFBenefits. OsSTFBenefits Trust newsletters and information can only be accessed on the OSSTF province website for members.
