OSSTF/FEESO, School Boards and the Government Reach a Support Staff Tentative Agreement

TORONTO, ON--(Marketwired - November 30, 2015) - The Ontario Secondary School Teachers' Federation (OSSTF/FEESO) reached a tentative agreement at the Support Staff central bargaining table on Friday, November 27 with the Government of Ontario and the Council of Trustees' Associations, representing Ontario school boards.

The tentative agreement was endorsed and recommended for ratification today at a meeting of OSSTF/FEESO local leaders, and will be presented to members for ratification at a series of local meetings over the next three weeks. All central strike action by OSSTF/FEESO members is suspended, pending ratification of the agreement.

The terms of the central agreement will not take affect at any school board where a local agreement has not also been reached. Local support staff negotiations are ongoing with a number of school boards across the province.

OSSTF/FEESO, founded in 1919, has 60,000 members across Ontario. They include public high school teachers, occasional teachers, educational assistants, continuing education teachers and instructors, early childhood educators, psychologists, secretaries, speech-language pathologists, social workers, plant support personnel, university support staff, and many others in education.
