1. A courtesy call when lessons are cancelled late. We have been told that ISs will be asked to inform the staff to tell teachers about CTL lessons when possible. We wish to see if this is happening. Please let us know if you are not informed about your CTLs.
2. Allowing all teachers to participate in training seminars and workshops. ISs will be informed to let all teachers know about upcoming training and to allow teachers to participate if it fits into the LC’s training budget. Let us know if you’re being informed.
3. Break Policy Current policy is that teachers can be required to teach up to six classes in a row. With the teacher’s consent, seven classes may be possible and either the first or seventh lesson will be paid at the bonus rate.
4.Paying for all time worked. This is a demand that the union has been working on for some time. The employer’s answers at our latest round of collective bargaining has not satisfied the union that teachers are not working during break times. The union’s demand is simple, pay teachers for the work that they are definitely doing before, between, and after classes. We have left Berlitz with one question, “When should teachers be picking up their teaching materials for the upcoming class?” We’ll let you know what they say.
