Since bargaining between the BCTF and BC Public School Employers’ Association (BCPSEA) officially opened on February 19, 2019, the two sides have met several times. There have been multiple meetings each week and there are many dates set until June 30, 2019. There are now three bargaining updates for members to review on the MyBCTF portal. Talks are still in early stages.
All members have access to the portal and need to log in using their member ID number. For members who have never accessed the member portal before, click the “Sign up now” button when you first arrive at MyBCTF.ca. If you don’t know your BCTF Member ID, you can register for the first time with your employee number. Please check your contact information is up to date while you are there.
In 2019, we start bargaining with the employer. In preparation, the NDTA has formed a bargaining team and in January, we sent out a bargaining survey to all members. We are presently formalizing our priorities for both provincial and local bargaining. Please feel free, as we lead up to bargaining, to continue to contact Carla Wilson with any concerns you may have about current language in the collective agreement or any difficulties you’ve experienced in the administration of our collective agreement or other bargaining issues. You can contact her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
