Collective agreement

Our new Collective Agreement between the Chignecto-Central Regional Centre for Education and CUPE Local 3890 was ratified on October 06, 2018.

The OLD collective agreement can still be viewed by clicking the link below.


Our bylaws set out the rules for how our local membership elects our representatives, and how the local is run.


Our Collective Agreement consists of many pages of benefit provisions. Most are self-explanatory, like hours of work, wages, pensions, health benefits, sick leave, etc. but there are some more benefits that are not so obvious. We will list some here.


Our pension plan is offered by the NSSBA (Nova Scotia School Boards Association) and is administered by Morneau Shepell. Our own HR department can answer some basic questions about how the plan works, but a guide, put out by the NSSBA offers a more detailed look at the plan.
