Welcome to the Website of the Management Negotiating Committee for English-language School Boards

The Management Negotiating Committee for English-language School Boards (CPNCA) is composed of representatives appointed by the Ministre de l'Éducation et de l'Enseignement supérieur and by the Quebec English School Boards Association (QESBA). 

The mandate of the CPNCA is to prepare provincial bargaining proposals and to submit them to the Treasury Board for the purposes of authorizing bargaining mandates concerning the collective agreements of teaching, professional and support staff of Québec English-language school boards.

The Act respecting the process of negotiation of the collective agreements in the public and parapublic sectors (Bill 37) defines the framework of the negotiation of the working conditions of school board personnel. Bill 37 determines the organizational structure of the union and employer-group parties, identifies the matters (subjects) that may be negotiated at the national and local levels.

At the provincial level, the intersectorial matters (salaries, pension plans, group insurance plans, parental rights, etc.) are discussed and negotiated by the Governement and the unions at a central table and are under the jurisdiction of the Treasury Board, while the CPNCA organizes, coordinates and oversees the negotiation of the sectorial matters (organization of work, movement of personnel, job security, fringe benefits, etc.).
