The first round of sanctions by secondary school teachers could start in the Trillium Lakelands District School Board if an agreement is not reached locally.
This from the Teachers Federation District 15 President, Colin Matthew, who says they are looking for consistency in agreements made centrally.
He says the Collective Bargaining Act requires all local boards to have an opportunity to respond to the central agreement.
District 15 will go to the bargaining table on November 4th, after being without a contract for 14 months.
Some of the issues being brought up for clarity are accessing time off for family medical emergencies and improvements to part-time and temporary teachers rights.
If an agreement is not reached and teachers enforce these sanctions, Matthew says it will not affect things like extra curricular activities or school trips.
