Alberta Teachers Association
Battle River School Division, just like every other school division in the province of Alberta, has a collective agreement with its teachers. Most pieces of the agreement are addressed at a province-wide level, but issues specific to our local area are discussed between the Battle River Local #32 and the Battle River School Division. The two groups are currently working on issues that will be included in the 2018-2020 agreement.
Battle River School Division has a small group of staff who are members of CUPE.
The previous agreement between BRSD and CUPE expired on August 31, 2016.
The process of negotiating ended on June 27, 2017, with terms of a new collective agreement informally agreed to by both parties.
The new agreement was ratified by BRSD on August 24, 2017. It took effect immediately, for the four year term of September 1, 2016 to August 31, 2020.
