Ycdsb Collective Agreement
The OECD and provincial representatives are currently at the negotiating table. If no provisional agreement is reached today, a one-day strike will take place tomorrow, Friday, February 21, and we will continue to provide updates and information on this page and on our Twitter account @ycdsb. As you may know in the most recent media, the Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE) is currently negotiating a renewed provincial collective agreement and has been on strike since Monday, September 30, 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. Updates are still published on this page and are also available on Twitter (@ycdsb). On 8 April 2020, the OECD announced that its members had ratified the agreement on essential terms for a new treaty. Today, the Ontario English Catholic Teachers Association (OECD) announced that no interim agreement has been reached with the province and that legal action will begin on Monday, January 13, 2020. This means that the central body of each union negotiates with the province and its local units to negotiate with each school board. Different aspects of a collective agreement are negotiated at each level. On October 6, CUPE and the province announced that they had entered into a new collective agreement. This interim agreement is currently ratified by CUPE members. The York Catholic District School Board (YCDSB) is pleased to announce that a new collective agreement has been reached with CUPE Local 2331.
YCDSB employees represented by CUPE Local 2331 include office workers, designated early childhood educators (DECEs), educational assistants (EHA), library technicians, lunch facilitators, lunch desk support staff, school secretariat staff and student support staff (SSWs). After a series of rounds of negotiations in recent months, an interim agreement on a renewed collective agreement was signed on 28 January 2020. YCDSB`s Board of Trustees submitted the interim transaction for approval at its Board meeting on January 28, 2020. CUPE Local 2331 had this interim regulation ratified with its members on 5 February 2020. The interim regime has been ratified by both parties. The new collective agreement between YCDSB and CUPE Local 2331 completes the central CUPE agreement negotiated under the collective agreement of the school board and previously ratified on November 1, 2019. 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 York Catholic District Board (YCDSB) and CUPE Local 1571 tentatively agreed this weekend.
The details of the provisional agreement are confidential and are subject to ratification by the YCDSB and the Union. 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. 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. The Ontario English Catholic Teachers Association (OECD) reached an interim agreement with the provincial government and the Ontario Catholic School Trust Association (OCSTA) on March 12, 2020.
