Local 4 – Bodwell Language School

Bodwell Language School enthusiastically joined ETEA in 2009. Pay equity was a long-standing issue. The owner had separated the language school financially from his other businesses. Soon after, he decided to close the school, citing a lack of business. The Union responded by supplying skilled negotiators who succeeded in obtaining severance pay for all members of the teaching staff.

ETEA honours the certification of Local 4, but has retired the number.
