On March 5th and 6th, 2018 collective bargaining representatives for both full-time and occasional teachers, attended collective bargaining training held in Toronto. Participants were treated to a warm welcome from President Sam Hammond as well as an excellent keynote address from JP Hornick who is the second vice-president of OPSEU Local 556. The message throughout the two days was to be prepared and be united when participating in collective bargaining on behalf of the membership.
