Legislative Update – New Proclamation

The Government has issued the following Proclamation:

The Public Schools Amendment and Manitoba Teacher’s Society Amendment Act, S.M. 2021, c. 39

This Bill amends The Public Schools Act to establish centralized collective bargaining for teachers who are employed in the public school system. 

[…] The Manitoba Teachers’ Society Act is amended to require the society to establish a negotiating committee to carry out the society’s duties and powers for centralized collective bargaining for teachers.

The legislative amendments create a streamlined bargaining framework where all items are negotiated at a central table between the Manitoba Teachers’ Society (MTS) on behalf of all teachers’ associations and the employer bargaining representative on behalf of the employers’ organization.
