Members: Executive & Negotiation Representatives
Negotiations CommitteeThe primary function of the Negotiations Committee is to act as the group responsible for negotiating our memorandum of Agreement. This Agreement is essentially our working contract with the Board. The Negotiating Committee solicits the membership for ideas for modifications to our Agreement and then, negotiates them with the Board. Our Agreement typically runs for a term of three years. The negotiations process may take as long as a year. Once complete, the Committee presents the Agreement to the Membership for approval and then makes sure copies of the Agreement are available to the membership (see your employee portal or (http://www.aapsp.org/). The committee is always looking for ideas in which to improve our Agreement with the Board. Please feel free to send ideas to any committee members.

The Social Committee is one of the most active committees in AAPSP. Each year, the committee
organizes various social events for members (and often their families) to participate in. Not only are these events fun, but
they can be instrumental in team development and great for workplace spirit. Events have included a Children’s Christmas
Party, Ice Skating, Wine Tours, Night at the Races, and Professional Development. If you are new to AAPSP, attending a social
event is a great way to get to know your coworkers.
The TVDSB annual United Way Campaign is a true reflection of our commitment to our community. We support the United
Way agencies of London/Middlesex, Oxford and Elgin counties and the many community agencies hey serve. We know how important
many of these services are to our students, families and staff. Being part of this committee gives members an opportunity
to develop a theme, goal, and campaign plan for this District wide initiative.
