Bus drivers have been on the picket line since the first day of school, after the division and the union were unable to agree on a new collective agreement. Both sides have found themselves in a wage deadlock. “Without the process of counting the Labour Relations Act, this strike would take even longer. The school department should be prepared to negotiate a fair contract or agree on a binding arbitration procedure, and as we have already seen, this employer prefers to deny parents bus transportation rather than negotiate or have the strike dissolved by a third party. Number of school year classes Consult the full collective agreement 2014-2018 or choose the display sections of the following paragraph: The department gives the association the names of all teachers whose cheques are returned when sent to the last known address. Effective September 1, 2010, notwithstanding the other provisions of the collective agreement, annual rates of pay for all workers covered by this collective agreement are payable for the party or parts of each school year in a given calendar year, based on about 20 quarters (1/24) of the annual rate of pay payable for each month from September to August included. Any post-payment accommodation under this clause or related to termination of service is paid in accordance with this section. The agreement is a legally binding employment contract concluded through collective bargaining with the employer and the union. Number of full days equivalent in school year The collective agreement between the Winnipeg School Division and the WTA regulates the conditions of employment in the department. It is a matter of sketching out the obligations and rights and privileges of workers and employers. Except as stipulated elsewhere in this agreement, teachers are paid on the basis that parents whose children would be entitled to drive receive an allowance of USD 29 per month per child if they can take their child to school. The department will also offer options for pre-school and post-school services, support Winnipeg transit passports and distance learning, the letter says. A year of experience with Winnipeg staff, the teaching experience recognized by Manitoba Education and Advanced Learning (including other vacations, As recognized by the Department) as teaching experience while on leave from the Division, ten (10) days of classes or two hundred (200) course days are both and include a sabbatical period, except that every twenty (20) days without pay during a school year after each teacher`s contract comes into effect are counted as one (1) month of absence.
A lack of service without pay for a total of less than twenty (20) days per school year is not taken into account. Although Manitoba is currently subject to red level restrictions, the bus will follow the orange level protocol, meaning that only “weakest students” will be brought to school, the letter says.
