Why is it called Bargaining 2020?

The last round of collective agreements expired on August 31, 2020. Phases 1 and 2, the central portions of bargaining, are complete. We are currently in the midst of Local bargaining reaching several local agreements by June 2023. Until all school divisions reach a memorandum of agreement, bargaining 2020 remains active.
