TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Jan. 4, 2013) - Tomorrow, the Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE) will announce the results of a vote taken by school board sector leaders on a tentative agreement negotiated for its 55,000 Ontario school support workers to determine whether they will recommend ratification.
CUPE Ontario President Fred Hahn will make the announcement at 3:00 p.m., together with Terri Preston, chair of CUPE's Ontario School Board Coordinating Committee.
Details of the agreement will be released following the vote, which address the unique circumstances faced by school support workers.
CUPE represents 55,000 support workers in public, Catholic, French and English school boards across the province. These workers are the educational assistants, school secretaries, instructors, early childhood educators, community advisory staff, food service workers, library technicians, custodians and others who are the backbone of our education system.
