Family Day – Article 32.07
The NBTF wishes to remind that teachers with a full-time B contract are entitled to one family day per school year.
Teachers are advised to apply for this day as soon as possible, as the employer has the right to refuse to grant this day on a specific date if it can justify that it would affect operational needs. Once the family day has been approved by the district, it cannot be cancelled.
We would also like to remind teachers not to make any reservations/plans until the approval is given by the school district to avoid any unpleasant surprises.
If you have any questions or concerns about the family day, please do not hesitate to contact the Federation at 1-888-679-7044.
