Ontario Labour Relations Board upholds OECTA's bargaining process

TORONTO, Feb. 27, 2013 /CNW/ - Yesterday, the Ontario Labour Relations Board (OLRB) dismissed the complaint against the Ontario English Catholic Teachers' Association (OECTA) brought forward by four parties representing local OECTA units, following the signing of the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the government.

In his decision, OLRB Chair Bernard Fishbein stated that the facts outlined in the applications "do not make out any possible violations of the Ontario Labour Relations Act and are therefore dismissed."

"This decision re-affirms that the local presidents and the Provincial Executive established a process in good faith, with the best interest of the membership in mind, and consistent with our obligations under the OLRA," says OECTA President Kevin O'Dwyer.

During the past several months, OECTA's Council of Presidents and Provincial Executive worked collaboratively to develop a new bargaining procedure to address the members' concerns about ratification of future provincial deals. Adds O'Dwyer, "This is the best place to address the concerns of the members, and will strengthen our position as we anticipate a new provincial bargaining process as identified by Premier Wynne."

OECTA represents the 43,000 professional women and men who teach all grades in publicly funded English Catholic schools in Ontario.
