Serving notice begins the collective bargaining process for all ETFO bargaining units and makes it clear that ETFO would like to meet within the next 15 days to discuss the list of items that will be bargained at the teacher/occasional teacher and education worker central tables. For the past year, ETFO has been preparing for this round of bargaining. We surveyed our members in the fall and based on those survey results, we developed overall bargaining goals that were approved in February by Representative Council. And in May, local presidents approved the list of items that ETFO will propose at our central tables. ETFO is committed to negotiating in good faith, and we expect good faith bargaining from those who will be sitting across from us at central and local bargaining tables. Even so, we know that negotiations this year are going to be extremely challenging. That's why ETFO has spent the past year informing, engaging and mobilizing our members. Our members have responded very positively, and once again, have risen to the occasion. By signing petitions, attending rallies-- including the April 6th rally at Queen's Park attended by 30,000 people-- speaking to their MPPs and engaging with parents and members of the public, ETFO members have been standing up against the significant cuts to public education that are being unilaterally imposed by the current government. During the last few months, many of you took part in ETFO member engagement meetings held by school stewards across the province. At those meetings, you signed cards where you pledged to work together to protect the needs of Ontario's students. So far, over 30,000 of your pledge cards have been delivered to ETFO, and we continue to receive more signed cards every single day. It's very powerful to know that so many of you have affirmed your collective commitment to take action to defend Ontario's world-class publicly-funded education system, now and in the future. I want to end by thanking you, on behalf of ETFO's Provincial Executive, for your support as we enter the 2019 round of bargaining. We are proud to serve a membership that is so united, so inclusive and so strong. Those are the qualities that make our Union a force to be reckoned with in Ontario's public education system and at the bargaining table.
