Labour Updates

In Ontario, we have a two-tier collective bargaining process for school boards and their staff. It involves central (provincial) and local bargaining processes for staff groups, including teachers and support staff.

As of June 2024, the SCDSB has concluded negotiations with all of its union/federation partners and successful contracts have been reached. The next round of provincial and local negotiations can begin at the end of August 2026.

Unionized groups that represent SCDSB staff

As a board, we respect all our staff members and value their work. We remain committed to reaching fair, negotiated agreements with all our employee groups.
