The Ontario English Catholic Teachers’ Association has reached a tentative agreement with the Liberal government and the Ontario Catholic School Trustees’ Association, possibly avoiding a back to school strike.
“We appreciate the government’s efforts and those of the Catholic school trustees in reaching this tentative agreement,” said Ann Hawkins, OECTA President. “We worked hard to address the concerns of our members and believe this agreement will protect them as well as the quality of education in our schools.”
The details of the settlement are confidential, pending ratification by OECTA members, but work to rule has been immediately suspended during the ratification period.
OECTA represents 50,000 elementary and secondary school teachers in Ontario and has been in a legal strike position since August 17th.
