Tentative Education

OPSBA Reaches Tentative Agreement with ETFO at the Central Bargaining Table

Toronto - The Ontario Public School Boards' Association (OPSBA) announced that a tentative settlement has been reached with the Elementary Teachers' Federation of Ontario (ETFO) and the provincial government.

"This tentative settlement ensures positive learning conditions for students and is respectful of the teachers who work in our classrooms," said Michael Barrett, president of OPSBA. "Teachers and education workers deeply influence a positive and productive learning environment for students and are supported in this role through the peace and stability that comes from successfully negotiated collective agreements."

This tentative deal is a first step to restoring stability and harmony in our schools. Effective upon having signed the Memorandum of Settlement, ETFO has agreed to suspend all central job action. The impasse has been resolved and our students will have their full education experience restored to them.

Going into this round of bargaining OPSBA engaged in an inclusive process to determine priorities. This lengthy process ensured the Association had broad input from all of our school board stakeholder groups.
