Province Officially Amends Education Administration Act for Maternity and Parental Leave

Late in 2015, we were ecstatic to share news with all of you that James Allum, Minister of Education and Advanced Learning, brought an amendment to the Education Administration Act to the floor of the Manitoba Legislature (Province closes the Mommy/Parent Gap Issue). Yesterday we received an email from Manitoba Teachers’ Society President Norm Gould that the amendment would be taking effect January 15, 2016. On behalf of all of our members, I have thanked our President and the rest of our colleagues at MTS for their efforts in making this happen.
