Newfoundland teachers reach tentative agreement

Bargaining notes

The Newfoundland and Labrador Teachers’ Association has reached a tentative agreement with the Government of Newfoundland and Labrador and the Newfoundland and Labrador School Boards Association on a new collective agreement for teachers.

“The retention and recruitment of qualified teachers and the overall integrity of the public K–12 school system relies heavily on a collective agreement that supports NLTA members and is responsive to conditions impacting working and learning conditions in our schools,” said Trent Langdon, president of the Newfoundland and Labrador Teachers’ Association. 

“Over the next several weeks, teachers in the public K–12 education system in this province will consider the details of our tentative agreement. We look forward to the possible ratification of an agreement which will allow us to continue to concentrate on providing outstanding education to the students of this province.”

Details of the tentative agreement will be presented to teachers in the coming weeks. No other information will be released until teachers have been fully briefed on the contents of the tentative collective agreement. A vote on the tentative collective agreement is scheduled to take place from December 5 to 7.
