The objective of the Prairie Valley Teachers` Association is to bargain collectively, on behalf of the members, a local collective agreement subject to the local bargaining provisions of the Education Act, 1995; support and encourage the professional growth of teachers; actively cooperate with groups or individuals who have worked for public education; and to help teachers to be directly and actively involved in the decision-making process in education and to positively influence public opinion in education. There are a number of points that can be negotiated on the ground and it is important that as representatives of the locals, membership is sought before a year of negotiation in order to reach the best possible agreement to improve working conditions for PVTA membership. The local negotiation process requires time and effort on the part of those involved. All other questions – Gwen Paul – PVTA President Collective Bargaining offer teachers the opportunity to make a difference for the teachers they work with. Negotiations should focus on improving teaching and working conditions in the school department. It is important to realize that gains made at the local level can often influence and influence profits made in provincial negotiations.
