Officially, we are Elk Island Public Local 28 and we are a part of the Alberta Teachers' Association. Specifically, this Local serves teachers who work for the Elk Island Public School District in Vegreville, Mundare, Andrew, Lamont, Bruderheim, Fort Saskatchewan, Uncas, Ardrossan, Fultonvale, and Sherwood Park. Elk Island Local No. 28 advocates for public education and represents its members while striving for optimal learning and teaching conditions.
But... we do more than that! For our members, we provide special events, professional development activities, access to professional development funding, bargaining updates, breaking news, contests, our newsletter (The Bugler), and more. For the public, we provide information about our organization and, in the future, we hope to organize community events.
