LETTER #4 – INTERPRETATION OF ARTICLES 44 AND 47
TO: ALL BOARD CHAIRPERSONS
RE: INTERPRETATION OF ARTICLES 44 AND 47 OF THE LABRADOR WEST COLLECTIVE AGREEMENT
FROM: GORONWY PRICE, PRESIDENT, NLSBA
DATE: JANUARY 30, 2020
It has come to my attention that there may be some confusion regarding the interpretation placed on the above referred Articles. In situations where redundancies occur, it is my interpretation that Article 47 – Layoffs, should be used to effect any reassignments. Article 44 – Transfer of Teachers, should be utilized in other situations where transfers are required.
