Management Rights and BVTU Rights
Where items are not specifically delineated in the collective agreement, School District 54, as the employer, can invoke Article A.21, Management Rights.
The local union also has enshrined rights in the CA.
Article 22 in our local collective agreement explains the BVTU's rights. Subsections include language on (including but not limited to): President Release Time, BVTU Officers Release Time, School Staff Representatives, School Staff Committees, and Access to Information.

Having a general understanding of management versus BVTU rights can be useful for members.
You will see some language that needs updating. This can get brought forward during next year's bargaining.
