Welcome to SMP-NATOW!

When TEACHERS are given the front seats...

Our encounter with the members of the national council of Lärarförbundet (Swedish Teachers Union) was truly a great experience, even made more memorable with our visit to Jose Rizal University (JRU) during their celebration of World Teachers' Day.

I was touched by the statement of their caring University President, Dr. Fabella... "more than the financial loss that the K12 will bring to the school, we were more worried of the possible displacement of our teachers, that is why we took special measures to keep our teachers and not to let anyone go"

Now i know where the aggressiveness and cohesion of your faculty are coming from in maintaining your Level 3&4 accreditation levels and autonomous status...

Kudos JRU-FEU! Long live Lärarförbundet! Mabuhay SMP NATOW! Thank You Education International!"

An Evaluation of a Collective Bargaining Agreement between a Union Christian College faculty and Staff Union (UCCFSU -SMP-NATOW) and their University Employer.

On August 1, 2016, a signing ceremony was held for a collective bargaining agreement between the university (hereinafter referred to as “the University”) and Union Christian College faculty and Staff Union (hereinafter referred to as “the Labor Union”). As representatives of both the Labor Union and the University management signed the collective agreement, it marked an end to the labor disputes that had continued for more than a year and established a new employment relationship. In this article, I would like to review the content of the collective agreement, and the reasons why it took such a long time, in the anticipation of some lessons against making the same mistakes in the next collective bargaining sessions.
