Employer discriminated against teachers in private-school union drive: Arbitrator First contract negotiated despite tense bargaining DURING NEGOTIATIONS for a first union contract at the Islamic Foundation School (IFS) in Toronto, the school's principal advised the union that the tuition benefit would soon be discounted. The benefit had been in place since the forma- tion of the school in 1998. It offered teachers a 50 per cent reduction to the $450-per-month rate the school charged.

"Br Akbar has asked me to inform you that the 50 per cent staff discount offered to IFS teachers with children in the school is currently under union ne- gotiations."
