Bill 122 Update

In October 22, the Minister of Education introduced provincial bargaining legislation in the Ontario Legislature. The legislation, called the School Boards Collective Bargaining Act, 2013, is also referred to as Bill 122.

Bill 122 mandates a system of two-tier bargaining at central and local tables for teacher and occasional teacher bargaining units represented by ETFO.  There is also potential central bargaining for DECE, ESP, and PSP locals.

The government would like to see the bill reviewed by a legislative committee early in the New Year and a final vote by March break. The progress of the bill is in the hands of the Opposition.
