The Collective Agreement (PSSP Bargaining Unit)
The collective agreement is the contract ratified by OSSTF District 15 members in the Professional Student Services Personnel (PSSP) Bargaining Unit and the Trillium Lakelands District School Board, which specifies the rights and responsibilities of each party in the employment relationship. Like all collective agreements, it exists as the result of coordinated and concerted actions through collective bargaining, and requires continual maintenance.
The current collective agreement expired on August 31, 2012. Due to the actions of the Ontario Government through the adoption of Bill 115, the Putting Students First Act, new working conditions have been imposed that are not included in the collective agreement. Further, no new agreement has been reached locally with the District School Board. This has resulted in a considerable amount of confusion for members regarding various aspects of the relationship with the employer. If you have any questions related to your employment, please contact the District Office for clarification.
