NCDSB - Labour Relations Updates

Labour Relations Updates

January 9th 2020

Dear NCDSB Community,

The Ontario English Catholic Teachers Association (OECTA) is in a legal strike position. As a Catholic school board, we respect collective bargaining and are hopeful that a freely negotiated agreement will be reached soon. We are not directly involved in central bargaining, however, the parties who are involved are working hard on our behalf to achieve an agreement.  For the Northeastern Catholic District School Board all of our teachers are members of OECTA.

OECTA is engaging in legal job action on Monday, January 13, 2020 if an agreement is not reached by that time. This job action will affect Ministry of Education and/or school board initiatives only, and is not intended to have a direct impact on student learning. 

The Northeastern Catholic District School Board is working diligently to minimize any impact on our students and school communities. However, employees represented by OECTA provide essential services within our schools and board, and despite our best efforts to minimize disruption, OECTA’s job action will have some impacts to our schools. 

Despite the impact of OECTA’s job action, we know that our schools will remain welcoming Christ centred environments. As always, the safety of our students and staff will be given priority and any changes implemented in response to OECTA’s labour action will be considered through this lens.

We very much appreciate your understanding and thank you for your ongoing commitment to Catholic education. As circumstances in our schools change, every effort will be made to communicate with you.

We ask for your prayers for a speedy and just resolution to this matter.

Sincerely,
Signature Stamp - Tricia
Tricia Stefanic Weltz
Director of Education
