A Reminder to all Teachers...
We remind all of our colleagues to not be moving furniture, washing walls and floors or doing anything that is the responsibility of other employees of our district.
Please follow OHS guidelines in terms of what you can and can't do. You are a professional teacher, and should only be doing educational tasks as part of your work duties. If you have any questions, please contact Parkland Teachers' Local offices for any clarification.
We have created a video to help you claim the premiums you pay every month in your HSA. Please watch the video here.
For those that are interested, here is the Malatest Workload Study where thousands of teachers across Alberta spent over a year documenting their daily, weekly, and monthly workload. An interesting read, but no surprises from what we all expected.
Next Local Council Meeting will be Wednesday,

I can’t believe it is June already. This year has flown by from my perspective. Especially since Teachers’ Convention. It seems like yesterday that we were having our first local council meeting in September, and our planning had just begun to complete our many goals for the Local.
We have had an eventful and quite busy year for our Local. As I covered a lot of information for the year in my annual report given two weeks ago at our AGM, I will keep this report brief.
A few things important events have occurred during the last month. Our Central Bargaining negotiations were voted on by the provincial membership, and passed. Since then, TEBA has since voted and ratified the agreement. What this means is, that we are now moving full force into local bargaining. Our EPC and NSC are working hard to prepare for our opening proposal with our employer. The EPC will be meeting with teachers in the near future, to hold focus groups to see if anything that is not already in our proposal, and teachers would like have included.
We are also in the midst of a District Representative By-election. Robert Twerdoclib and James Hansen are the candidates for this position. Voting is open and will continue until June 8th at 5:00 pm. I would urge you to go back to your colleagues and make sure they are aware, and that they vote by tomorrow. This is an important election, and our DR is our voice at PEC.
As most of you are aware, this will be my last President’s Report not only for the year but ever. It has been my absolute pleasure to serve as your President over the last four years. I have enjoyed my time immensely, and will miss leading local council meetings, interactions with members when I visited schools, and representing you at the many meetings that occur over the year. I’m not sure what the future holds for me in terms of the ATA, but I will be back in some aspect or another. I have felt privileged to be your President, and I want to thank you for having faith in me. Thank you to everyone.
I will conclude by wishing all of our teachers within Parkland Teachers’ a wonderful, safe, and restful summer. Enjoy your time with family and friends. Read a book you have put off for too long. Go to a place you have always wanted to visit, and visit with a friend on a patio with a nice drink on a hot summer day. Summer will pass quickly, so we shall see you again at the beginning of September.
