The Orange Shirt Campaign – Every Child Matters remembers the experiences of former students of Indian Residential Schools and is a commitment to ongoing reconciliation in Canada. Originating in British Columbia, this is the third year the campaign will be running in BC and other parts of Canada, and the first coordinated effort to celebrate the campaign in Alberta. The campaign grew out of Phyllis’s account of having her shiny new orange shirt taken away on her first day of school at the St. Joseph Mission in Williams Lake, BC. The awareness campaign is an opportunity to continue the discussion on all aspects of residential schools each year.
Across the province Collective Agreements will be expiring at the end of August. With the passing of Bill 8, there is a new bi-level model that will be used to bargain our next Collective Agreement.The graphic below helps to explain this model but full details can be found online.
When provincial negotiations have ended we will be voting on the proposed agreements. This voting will be electronic so it is very important that teachers have created their ATA accounts. If you need any assistance with this please contact your school rep or local executive members.
