The solidarity of our members is the heart of our bargaining power and makes gains possible.
A Tentative Agreement
must be ratified by an all membership vote. It has to be also ratified by the Board. Then the new Collective Agreement takes effect!
Our Collective Agreement
Each and every ETFO member has a stake in reading and understanding the collective agreement, and in supporting the local bargaining process.
