Bargaining Updates

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. ​The process of negotiating a new collective agreement has taken place over the last year. Most pieces were addressed at a province-wide level, but issues specific to our local area were discussed between the Battle River Local and the Battle River School Division. A new Memorandum of Agreement was reached on October 19 and has since been ratified by both parties. The agreement will be in effect until August 31, 2018.
