Colleagues – usually in videos like this you would be hearing about what’s happening at ETFO from me. But this time I would like to do something a little different. ETFO’s goal setting process for 2019 collective bargaining belongs to you, our members. That’s why I have asked few ETFO members Vikita, Kory and Bobby, and Lilly. To share some important information with you about our goal setting process for the next round of collective bargaining. ETFO collective agreements expire as of August 31st 2019. While that may seem like a long time away our union has already begun to prepare for the next round of central bargaining. ETFO’s goals for every round of bargaining are based on members’ priorities and needs. That’s why our union always starts the goal setting process by surveying members. The goal setting process is now actively underway and includes an online member survey. You should have received an email with a link to that survey around November 5th from a research firm called Strategic Communications. You have until Wednesday November 21st to complete that online survey. If you did not receive a link to the survey and you want to participate go to ETFO’s bargaining goals website at ETFOCB.ca and click on the contact us button and let us know. ETFO will respond to your request as soon as possible. Between November 7th and November 21st some ETFO members may also be invited by strategic communications to participate in a fifteen minute telephone discussion about their bargaining priorities. If you are invited please let us know what issues you think our union needs to deal with in the next round of bargaining. ETFO relies on us to help define our union’s central bargaining goals. To those of you who have already completed the online survey, thank you. To members who have not yet, I am asking you to set aside fifteen or twenty minutes to fill out the online survey and encourage your ETFO colleagues to participate as well. Help ETFO determine, in an accurate and comprehensive way, our priorities for central bargaining in 2019.
