Overview

The Teachers’ Employer Bargaining Association (TEBA) is a statutory corporation created by the Public Education Collective Bargaining Act that represents school boards in the province in collective bargaining for all of Alberta’s public, separate, and Francophone teachers.

Bargaining process

TEBA is part of a 2 stage bargaining process.

In the first stage, TEBA bargains with the Alberta Teachers’ Association (ATA) on provincial matters affecting all teachers and employers to create a provincial memorandum of agreement.

In the second stage, individual school boards bargain with their local ATA representatives on local matters.

The items from the provincial memorandum of agreement merge with the local agreement to form a completed collective agreement.

Structure

Eight government appointees and 7 school board trustees form a board of directors to lead TEBA.

A representative committee of one trustee for each Alberta public, separate and Francophone school authority elects the 7 school trustees on the board of directors.

The board of directors sets the direction for TEBA and provides a mandate for bargaining. The board of directors, in consultation with the representative committee, votes to ratify any deal reached at the provincial bargaining table.
