Collective Agreement 2014-2017

This is your contract. Read it, know it. Keep it with you, and don't be afraid to assert yourself and insist on the working conditions we've negotiated for occasional teachers.

Niagara OT Collective Agreement 2014-17

Note that our contract for 2014-17 originated in three documents: Collective Agreement 2008-2012, which is modified by the 2014-17 Local Agreement, and the 2014-17 Central Agreement.  If you have a collective agreement question it's probably most efficient to contact president@niagaraot.org with your question.
