Teacher Collective Agreement Nl

(21) If the procedure laid down in Articles 12, 13 and 14 is followed and no collective agreement is concluded, the parties to the collective agreement, if they agree in writing, may refer all the disputed matters to an arbitration chamber and the matters shall be settled by arbitration. The previous collective agreement also contained provisions on seniority. Under the previous agreement, permanent teachers were envisaged for permanent posts before representation or for temporary workers. According to Hurley, if a teacher can prove that he has previously taught a given subject, he would probably be considered competent enough to qualify for a position in that field, even if he has never received formal university training in that field. After CBC/Radio-Canada published its story on Monday, the NLTA said: "Permanent teachers can expect their seniority to be valued when applying for tenure. Thus, transfers should take place in a unionized environment. (c) Where a binding or concluded collective agreement for an entity is in force at the time of certification, the association shall be replaced as a contracting party by the negotiator who, on behalf of that entity, is a party to the agreement. 48h The provisions of a collective agreement or of a decision or arbitration award of an arbitration committee under this Act, which directly or indirectly relate to the use of provincial public funds for education, are binding on each school board in the province, whether or not the school board has been represented on the school committee or is a party to the corresponding collective agreement or arbitration. . . .
