For more information about the benefits offered to teachers, please visit the Saskatchewan Teachers' Federation (STF) website and the following documents: the provincial collective agreement and the collective agreement of the CÉF.
For all school boards in the province, the salary scale of teachers is negotiated between the Saskatchewan Teachers' Federation (STF), the Government of Saskatchewan, in consultation with the Saskatchewan School Boards Association.
Among other things, this agreement addresses the issue of wages, recognition of years of experience, retirement, group insurance, sick leave, supplementary benefits and employment insurance. For a copy of the agreement, click here.
