Teacher and Staff Appreciation Week
As we recognize the National Teacher and Staff Appreciation Week, we would like to express our sincere gratitude to all educators for the invaluable contribution you make to public education in New Brunswick. Every day you inspire confidence, cultivate creativity, and encourage the personal growth of every learner, often in very challenging conditions.
As NBTF Co-Presidents, our commitment to you is rooted in our advocacy for safe, healthy, and thriving schools. We promise to continue to champion initiatives that prioritize the safety and well-being of every student and foster an environment where both educators and students can thrive.
Thank you for your dedication and passion!
When schools are closed due to inclement weather, do teachers need to report to work if an activity (e.g. professional development) had already been planned?
Note : In the new Collective Agreement, there is a letter of agreement that allows for current practice to continue during the 2023-2024 school year. However, the parties will discuss possible alternatives with regards to days on which there is inclement weather and the expectations of teachers. The NBTF will inform its members of all changes that may arise.
Did you know that you have the right to be treated with respect and to work in a safe, orderly, productive, respectful, and harassment-free environment?
The NBTF handles an increasing number of cases where the health and safety of teaching staff are compromised. We invite you to join our live information session on this topic to learn about your rights and possible actions to take.
The presentation will be offered next Monday, February 12, 2024, from 5 p.m. to 5:45 p.m. in English, and from 4 p.m. to 4:45 p.m. in French.
*Sessions will be recorded and available on the members-only section of the website, under Members/Healthy and Safe Workplace/Teachers’ Rights to Work in a Healthy and Safe Environment.
