AN AGREEMENT FOR THE TEACHING STAFF OF THE KATIVIK SCHOOL BOARD

QUEBEC, Feb. 25 /CNW Telbec/ - Late, last evening, the Association of Employees of Northern Quebec (AENQ-CSQ), affiliated to the FSE, and the Kativik school board negotiation committee (CPNCSK) reached an agreement in principle for the renewal of the Kativik school board (KSB) teachers' collective. 

« This agreement will undoubtedly have a positive impact on direct services to students and it will work to improve the quality of life of KSB's teachers. We had big mandates and we met them all. We can say: mission accomplished » declared M. Patrick D'Astous, president of AENQ. 

Subject to adoption by the members, the agreement of principle concluded between parties and the result of negotiations that lasted a little more than a year. This agreement meets all the major priorities of the union, namely when it comes to special needs students. Thus, were included in the agreement, different measures like the creation of a three-way committee, be it at the local or regional level, a process leading to services for specific needs of students in difficulty as well as support for teachers. Unavoidable and claimed for a long time by teachers, flexibility obtained to establish an adapted school calendar is a major gain. Furthermore, the tightening and implementation of measures for the global housing issue and other regional disparities were also at the heart of the negotiation and should facilitate the attraction and retention of teachers.

« All our congratulations to KSB teachers who, due to their strong mobilization and their great resolve, reached their objectives and gave themselves more ways to succeed », added M. Guy Savard, vice-president of the Fédération des syndicats de l'enseignement (FSE-CSQ), political responsible of the negotiation. 

The results of this agreement show the importance of collaboration and open-mindedness in the search for solutions to the different problems faced in Northern Quebec. Lets mention however that the negotiation went through fast unfolding the past few days, following the impressive mobilization demonstration of this union's members.
