St. Giles’ first full proposal includes language on teacher definitions, vacation and sick pay, different options for health plans and the acknowledgement that teachers work more than the hours they are scheduled
Your bargaining committee met with St. Giles’ lawyer. The Director remains on maternity leave. However, the Company did offer some “non-economic” proposals that agree with us on some important points, which we hope will make more space to discuss bringing health benefits and pay for all work to our members.
The team stood firm on the notion that teachers are hourly workers, that they work more than just when they are in the classroom, and that it is their right to be paid for every hour that they work for St. Giles.
