Public High School teachers are set to begin selective withdrawal of services against the Greater Essex County District School Board on Tuesday, September 29th, unless a local collective agreement can be reached between OSSTF/FEESO and the board by that time.

Local leaders in OSSTF/FEESO District 9 said that a lack of meaningful progress at their local bargaining table is responsible for the decision to take job action.

“Our members have been without an agreement for more than a year,” said Jeff Brosseau, President of OSSTF/FEESO District 9, Greater Essex, Secondary Teachers. “There are significant issues that we have been unable to address in the last few rounds of bargaining. Our goal is to ensure consistency and fairness in our collective agreement, and we’re not going to achieve that by accepting status quo or submitting to concessions.”

The union says that they expect local agreements to mirror the central agreement that was reached in August with the government and the school boards’ association, in which there were no strips and modest improvements for members.
