The MB Teacher`s Collective Agreement: What You Need to Know

The Manitoba Teacher`s Society (MTS) recently negotiated a new collective agreement with the provincial government, which will cover the next three years. This agreement, which affects over 15,000 teachers across the province, includes changes to salary, benefits, and other important issues.

One of the key changes in the new agreement is an increase in salaries for teachers. Starting in 2020, the agreement will provide a salary increase of 1.6% for each year of the contract. This increase is designed to help attract and retain quality teachers in Manitoba schools.

The new agreement also includes improvements to benefits for teachers. The MTS negotiated enhancements to health and dental benefits, as well as improved short-term and long-term disability coverage. These benefits are important for teachers who may face health challenges during their careers.

Another important aspect of the new collective agreement is the inclusion of language that supports a respectful and safe workplace. This includes a commitment by the government and the MTS to work together to prevent and address harassment, discrimination, and violence in the workplace.

The agreement also includes provisions for job security, which is especially important during times of economic uncertainty. The MTS was able to negotiate a commitment from the government to maintain current levels of teaching positions, even if enrollment numbers decrease. This means that teachers in Manitoba can feel secure in their jobs, even during uncertain times.

Overall, the new Manitoba Teacher`s Collective Agreement is a positive development for teachers in the province. With increased salaries, improved benefits, and a commitment to a respectful and safe workplace, teachers can feel supported and valued in their roles. The MTS is proud to have negotiated this agreement on behalf of its members and looks forward to continuing to work with the government to improve education in Manitoba.
