Signing of the 2023-2028 Collective Agreement for the New Frontiers, Riverside and Sir Wilfrid Laurier School Boards

Today at the CPNCA building located on Stanley Street in Montreal, the Conseil national du soutien scolaire (CNSS-SEPB) signed the final texts of the 2023-2028 collective agreement for the three English school boards.

The signing marks the conclusion of negotiations that spanned nearly two years.

The progress made during these negotiations, particularly in terms of salaries, improved professional development, classroom support and insurance, was made possible by the historic mobilization of our members. However, there is still a long way to go to resolve the growing problems of work overload, violence and attracting and retaining staff in schools.

Future payments

It is important to remember that the salary increases negotiated by the Common Front will give all members a 17.4% increase over 5 years.
Salary retroactivity dating back to April 1, 2023, and salary adjustments will be applied within a maximum of 60 days from the time of signing.

In the weeks that come, your union locals will be sending further details and information pertaining to the 2023-2028 collective agreement.
