Collective Bargaining

Provincial Bargaining Preparations have begun by MTS:

Bill 45 – The Public Schools Amendment and The Manitoba Teachers’ Society Amendment Act,  has been proclaimed. It establishes a provincial bargaining model for all public school teachers, with the exception of the Division Scolaire Franco-Manitobaine (DSFM).

What you need to know?

  • MTS is prepared and has initiated the Society’s Provincial Bargaining Protocol, which you can read HERE. The Society will be the central bargaining agent for Manitoba teachers (except for DSFM).
  • Our local collective agreement expires June 30, 2022, and is followed until a new one is reached.
  • MTS supports single-tier provincial bargaining, subject to the following conditions:
  1. Teachers remain governed under the Labour Relations Act.
  2. MTS will bargain directly with the Province of Manitoba (the funder).
  3. Bargaining must be fair and with an open scope.
  4. The mechanisms for dispute resolution, whether strike or interest arbitration, must be without limitation.
  5. The best provisions from existing collective agreements should be the standard for the new

MTS and ITA may send regular all-member emails. Please update your MyProfile (LINK) with a personal email, or risk missing out on bargaining updates and the all-members email THE SUB.
