Bill 124 Remedy

November 16, 2023

After a very long day of meetings, we are pleased to share that we have reached an agreement with the Crown and CTA regarding remedy for Bill 124.

We will be preparing more fulsome information for members in the coming days.

The ability of the OSBCU to reach this deal in a timely manner is directly related to the worker power that has been built over the last year and continues to build today.

Retroactive compensation increases will be: 0.75% for 2019-20, 0.75% for 2020-21, and an amount between 1.5% and 3.25% for 2021-22, as determined by an arbitrator.  In addition to retroactive payments, wage rates in the 2022-2026 collective agreements be increased and  all wage increases will be pensionable. Premiums and allowances will also be adjusted.  These increases are in addition to the 1% that workers already received in the 2019-2022 collective agreements.

Après une très longue journée de réunions, nous sommes heureux d’annoncer que nous avons conclu une entente avec la Couronne et le CTA concernant la réparation du projet de loi 124.

Nous préparerons des informations plus complètes pour les membres dans les prochains jours.

La capacité de le CSCSO à parvenir à cet accord dans les meilleurs délais est directement liée à la force des travailleurs qui s’est construite au cours de l’année dernière et qui continue de se développer aujourd’hui.

Les augmentations rétroactives de la rémunération seront : 0,75 % pour 2019-2020, 0,75 % pour 2020-2021 et un montant compris entre 1,5 % et 3,25 % pour 2021-2022, tel que déterminé par un arbitre. En plus des paiements rétroactifs, les taux de salaire dans les conventions collectives 2022-2026 seront augmentés et toutes les augmentations de salaire ouvriront droit à pension. Les primes et allocations seront également ajustées. Ces augmentations s’ajoutent au 1% que les travailleurs ont déjà reçu dans les conventions collectives 2019-2022.

OSBCU Bargaining Update #48

Following 170 days of negotiations, your OSBCU Bargaining Committee brought a tentative agreement back to you, the members.

A record number of your used your voice –41,559 members participated – 76% of the membership!

30,330 members – 73% voted to accept the tentative agreement

11,229 – 27% voted to turn down the agreement

For the first time in a decade, education workers have achieved a collective agreement free from government-legislated interference.

We have seen unprecedented workerengagement. It is this engagement that will continue to hold the government accountable and we will continue to fight to improve our publicly funded, publicly delivered education system.

Gains are not won at the bargaining table alone.  Today we recommit to fighting alongside our allies & communities to demand more.
