Educational Assistants, Designated Early Childhood Educators, and professional/para-professionals like Child and Youth Workers,
psychologists and Speech and Language Pathologists have reached a new tentative agreement with the Windsor-Essex Catholic District School Board.

The deal with the Canadian Union of Public Employees Local 1358, whose two units represent about 450 employees was reached Wednesday.

“We believe this is a fair agreement for the board and for our employees,” said Terry Lyons, Director of Education. “It acknowledges the value of the contributions that these employees make in the lives of our students and their families, but also recognizes the reality of our
present financial circumstances.”

The agreement still needs to be ratified by the union’s membership and the Board of Trustees. Ratification dates are still to be determined by both parties
