The collective bargaining framework for the education sector features a two-tier bargaining process, or central and local bargaining as it is often referred to. Participants at the central level include the government and trustees' associations (CTA/CAE) as co-management partners, negotiating fair and equitable central collective agreements with teacher federations and education worker unions.
The CTA/CAE provides continued leadership, service and support to all member boards in ongoing labour relations and collective bargaining services. The Provincial Portal is a restricted-access database available to Public, Catholic, and French Language school boards in Ontario providing information on negotiations, as well as a comprehensive searchable database of collective agreements, legal opinions and arbitration decisions. Users also have access to the Grievance Tracking System (GTS) where information related to central grievances province-wide is maintained.
