Our original contract was negotiated when there was a much friendlier relationship with the DSBN. A lot of the language was left vague, open to interpretation or non-existent because everyone understood, as an example, what a staff meeting was. Today, what does a staff meeting look like at your school? We do approximately 45 minutes of PD and 15 minutes of meeting. I know from TBU meetings, many schools have much worse. Contract language impacts our working conditions and students’ learning conditions. It needs to be a priority.
