Attention EIPS Teachers,
Do you care about the needs of teachers in our board? Are you willing to meet 3-5 times a year? Do you like to debate with your colleagues? Are you interested in our Collective Agreement?

The Teacher Welfare Committee is still looking for members for this year. It is an exciting time, as we will be creating a new member survey and proposal for bargaining during the year.

We are especially looking for a substitute teacher representative, so if you know someone, please let them know we need them.

We provide refreshments and nibbles at every meeting.

Please contact chair Jennifer Fredeen if you are interested in this committee.

Duties of TWC members

Throughout their term of office, all members of the TWC are expected to monitor the collective agreement in terms of its application, its efficacy, and its current relevance for the membership. Ideas for improvements, changes, or additions are discussed. Within the TWC, two other committees are formed. The Negotiating Subcommittee consists of five members. They work with all TWC members to research and prepare a proposal for changes to the Collective Agreement. They 'go to the table' to work out a deal with board representatives. The Grievance Committee consists of  two people who are involved with disputes regarding the application of the collective agreement.
