The NBTF continues to develop initiatives to better inform its members and enhance the value of the teaching profession. Among other things, we will continue to send newsletters to all members, keep the website up-to-date, and publish on social media.
Atlantic Trustees Conference
The Federation hosted the Atlantic Trustees’ Conference on October 14-15, 2018. This conference is an opportunity for the Trustees in the Atlantic Provinces to discuss the current status of their respective group insurance plans and the benefits that are offered. The trustees have also received training on current topics in order to be better equipped to represent the interests of all plan members.
Violent Incident Report
The NBTF presented recent statistics on violent incidents reports received in recent years. To keep these statistics up-to-date, the NBTF asks all teachers to take a few minutes to complete the form, available on the NBTF website, every time such incident occurs. A reminder will be sent to all members in the NBTF October’s Newsletter.
The NBTPP Trustees meet four times a year. In the fall, a newsletter was sent by email to all teachers. The pension plan is in a very strong financial position at a funding level of 105%. All financial information can be found on their website at vestcor.org.
