The Windsor-Essex Catholic District School Board has arrived at a new tentative labour agreement with the union that represents its 500 secondary teachers.

The tentative agreement covers local terms for WECDSB secondary teachers, however details will not be released as it still needs to be ratified by Board Trustees as well as the union’s membership. An agreement that covers central terms for all of Ontario’s teachers was finalized with the provincial Ministry of Education in March of 2020.

“This is a fair agreement for both the board and our secondary teachers,” said Emelda Byrne, Director of Education. “It’s a fiscally responsible contract that acknowledges the current circumstances in which we are currently operating, but also the contributions of these valued employees to our students and their families.”

The union will hold an electronic ratification vote before the end of November.

The Board already approved agreements with its 750 elementary teachers in March of 2021 and with its 350 occasional teachers in January of 2021.
