March is a busy month. Not only is March Break fast approaching with our Annual Meeting of Provincial Assembly (AMPA) but we have two big issues facing us. A ratification vote and a change in benefits plan.
We will be holding information General Meeting on March 22 at Zorba's about the new agreement to extend our Collective Agreement and the proposed remedy for our court case against Bill 115. This meeting will start at 4:30 p.m. There will also be a ratification vote. The vote will take place in workplaces on Monday, March 27.
Our benefits plan is changing over to the Provincial OSSTF Plan as of April 1, 2017. Information about our change in benefits has just arrived. Please check the section New Benefits 2017 under the Instructors, PSSP or Teachers Tab for more information. There will be a General Meeting for the Benefits information on Thursday, March 30 also at Zorbas and starting at 4:30 pm. Representatives from OTIP will be present to answer questions.
The annual Retirement Workshops are coming up. The OMERS Workshop will be Monday, April 3 at the District Office and the OTPP Workshop will be Tuesday, April 4 at LCVI. Please look under the Reports tab for more information
