The MOA was ratified by the local and PWPSD, so we have a new collective agreement. Every teacher should read their collective agreement and know what it offers for them.
Collective agreements are available on the ATA website - https://www.teachers.ab.ca/Public%20Education/CollectiveAgreements/

The new one has not been updated yet, we’ll let you know when it is available.
Information regarding the new Wellness Spending Account ( WSA) will be coming as soon as it is actualized with ASEBP. Members will receive information directly from the Employer and ASEBP regarding their WSA.
