Ontario English Catholic Teachers

Bargaining Units

The Association has 75 local bargaining units, composed of elementary, secondary, or occasional teachers, or a combination thereof.

Each unit has its own locally elected executive composed of, at minimum, a president, secretary, and treasurer. Members of the executive are elected annually. Unit presidents, or their designates, are voting members of the Council of Presidents.

The main responsibilities of the local bargaining unit are to represent its members in local collective bargaining negotiations with their employing school board, process member grievances, and advocate for the health and safety of the workplace environment.

Local presidents are the voice of members between Annual General Meetings, bringing their experience as district leaders, and their knowledge and understanding of members' needs, to the Association's decision-making processes.
