About This Resource

The purpose of this document is to support teachers in being consciously reflective of their professional autonomy as well as their rights and responsibilities as a teacher.

Development of this document articulates some best practices identified the Professional Issues Advisory Committee (PIAC) on the following topics:

  • the value and purpose of public education
  • the meaning, importance, and practice of teachers’ professional autonomy
  • professional autonomy in terms of collective agreements and bargaining
  • professional autonomy as it relates to the union’s priorities and commitments to reconciliation, solidarity, and social justice.

A SURT is also available for this lens.
