Tonight, we received notice that a tentative agreement has been reached with the Elementary Teachers’ Federation of Ontario (ETFO) for both teachers and education workers. ETFO has agreed to suspend all job action while awaiting ratification of the deal, which will remain confidential until it is ratified by all parties. View the news release from the Ontario Public School Boards’ Association with additional information.
We remain hopeful that a deal can also be reached with all other education workers in Ontario. They are valued partners and employees, and we appreciate their commitment to the students and families we serve, especially during this challenging time.
