Teachers at International Language Schools of Canada (ILSC) founded ETEA. Our unification initiative began in 1995 following a wage dispute. At the time, teachers agreed that they needed a stronger voice in negotiating workplace conditions. That is why we organized and negotiated our first collective agreement with the help of the International Longshore and Warehouse Union. In April 1996, we opted for a more self-sustaining existence through the College Institute and Educators Association (CIEA), an association of public and private sector teachers` unions.

Since then, CIEA has changed its name to FPSE (Federation of Post-Secondary Educators). ETEA is FPSE Local 21, which is an indoor educator.

Enterprise agreements are collective agreements between employers and workers on employment conditions. The Fair Labour Commission can provide information on the process of drafting enterprise agreements, evaluate and approve agreements. We can also deal with disputes over the terms of the agreements. Since then, ILSC teachers have achieved many significant benefits through collective bargaining and the highly contentious efforts of their officers and members. Over time, Local 1 teachers have developed a better understanding and collaboration with ILSC management. Improved framework and working conditions have led many teachers to stick to the ILSC in the long term. These teachers, on the other hand, have made a significant contribution to ILSC`s range of curricula and classes, from filmmaking to e-business.

ILSC Vancouver ETEA members now work under their sixth collective agreement and have benefits such as extended health and dentistry, paid preparation time, paid sick leave, RRSP-matching, up to six weeks of paid leave and various types of unpaid leave. Under the collective agreement, the union was also able to negotiate class size limits. If you receive help to understand the minimum wage and the conditions that apply to you, contact the Ombudsman for fair work. Modern rewards cover an entire sector or profession and provide a safety net between minimum wage rates and employment conditions.
