Thanks for participating!!
The D17 Teachers' Bargaining Unit held their AGM on Thursday May 28th. There was record attendance thanks to support and encouragement from Branch Presidents. We had over 180 people for dinner, more than 100 more than last year. A wonderful reception was held beforehand for retirees and new members and that seemed to be a hit. The meeting began just after 5 with a toast to the retirees from our very own Dave Crann, soon to be retired himself. There were speeches and reports and motions and a budget all of the business of the house was completed. The evening ended with a very informative report from our Provincial Executive member Jo Dean followed by questions from the audience. Jeff Parton, our OTBU President, did a fabulous job as roving photographer, documenting the evening. Those pics will be posted very shortly on this website. That evening, we also held elections for many of our executive positions. I am pleased to announce the successful election of these members to the following positions:
TBU Officer Negotiations - Tom Barnes
TBU Officer Grievance - Jessica Burnie
